When I first began searching for tunes to learn, Christy Barry's was one that tickled my ears a lot. The version I heard is played by Kevin Crawford. It's on his 'd' flute album. Let's learn it together!

First, listen to Kevin's version. It's just the first tune on this set:
Slowed down for learning
Now let's learn it. If you learn best by reading the music ("the dots") you can download the music from thesession.org. The second version at the link is probably closest to the one we'll learn here. That said, as most teachers will tell you, you'll pick up tunes a lot faster over time if you learn to play Irish music by ear. So I encourage you to give this a try.
