Tune of the Day: Munster Bank

Traditional Irish polka

Ireland has historically been divided into four provinces: Connacht, Leinster, Munster and Ulster. Munster is the southernmost of them, including cities such as Cork, Limerick and Waterford.

This tune goes by many different names, and as is often the case with polkas, it tends to be called after a local musician. Some of the most common titles are “Dan Sweeney's Polka”, “Johnny Leary's Polka” and “Art O'Keeffe's Polka”.
