Tune of the Day: Homeward Bound
This march is taken from Francis O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in Chicago in 1922. O'Neill writes:
This spirited march was memorized by the writer in early life; all circumstances relating to its acquirement being now forgotten. We have no assurance of its Gaelic origin, yet few would deny that it was worth preserving at least. For obvious reasons, a name has been supplied for its identification.
