An Spailpin Fanach

"An Spailpin Fanach" is an early Irish version of a song that became one of America's most widely known folk tunes. Known originally as "The Bard of Armagh," the melody migrated westward, evolving eventually into a popular song, "The Girl I Left Behind Me."

You can hear the version by Dervish

You find two sheets of music, one with the tune of Spailpin Fanach, the other is the song "The Girl I left Behind"
