Green Fields of Rossbeigh (The)

“The Green Fields of Rossbeigh” has been one of my favourite tune for a very long time! I learned it from my friend Stéphane, when he used to work in the Traditional Music Shop in Doolin. It was a very quiet day for business and I went in for a chat. About half an hour later, Stéphane had his accordion out and taught me this great reel. I also associate this tune with accordion player Seán Vaughan.
