An Tri Is A Rian

I actually don’t know much about An Tri is a Rian, and it’s not a “tune from Doolin” as such! I heard a recording of the great concertina player from Dingle Cormac Begley playing it, and loved it instantly. He called it “Mary MacNamara’s” so I assume he learned it from her. It was also recorded by Enda Scahill on his album Pick It Up.
