Sunny Hills of Beara (The)

I learned The Sunny Hills of Beara in 2020, it is a wonderful jig composed by the late John Dwyer. I learned it from the playing of Tony O’Connell (concertina) and Brid Harper (fiddle), who recorded it on Tony’s solo album ‘Live And Well, which is one of my favourite albums these past few years. I heard this tune quite a lot this past year so it seems to be quite popular.

I recorded this tune on Tunes From Doolin’s YouTube Channel, you can watch the video below.
