Tune of the Day: Waves of Tramore

Traditional Irish jig

This tune is taken from O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in 1922. O'Neill considers it “a much better jig than ‘Larry Grogan’ of which it is a variant. The latter was composed early in the 18th century by Lawrence Grogan of Johnstown Castle, Kilkenny, a ‘gentleman piper’, celebrated in song and story.”

Tramore is a seaside town in County Waterford on the southeast coast of Ireland. It was a small fishing village until 1853, when the Waterford-Tramore railway was completed and a tourism boom almost immediately started, drawn by the wide sandy beaches.
