I thought, perhaps, you would enjoy a chance to hear a few of them.
Mentioned during Katie's first trip out to the river to play in the evening...
"Reel du Goglu"
"After the Sun Goes Down"
"Paddy McFadden" (a tune originating in Scotland, where it was called "Hills of Glen Orchy," upon crossing the Irish Sea into the Ulster Region of Ireland took on the name "Paddy McFadden")
When Katie first plays her fiddle at the céilí...
"The Donegal Reel" (her first song, the one that stops the party in its tracks)
"The Dear Irish Boy" (the song she ends with, which Tavish says broke everyone's heart)
The tune Katie plays in memory of her father, "Ar Eirinn"
(the Irish verse is the original lyrics, though the English translation that follows isn't exact... still, a lovely, lovely rendition)
There are a ton more mentioned in Longing for Home, all of them real and authentic. Perhaps I'll do another installment down the road. And there are quite a few in the sequel, Hope Springs. We could be at this for a long time.
