Tune of the Day: March of the King of Laois

Traditional Irish tune

This ancient melody has been associated with the Irish family of O'Moore, and may have been composed in praise of one Ruairi Og O Mordha, a head of the family during the 16th century and a famous Irish hero of the resistance to English colonization of the time.

The tune is in the key of D Mixolydian, meaning that there is no leading-note (C's are not sharp).
