Tune of the Day: The Boys of Malin

Traditional Irish reel

“The Boys of Malin” is a very common session tune, especially in County Donegal, Ireland. Malin is one of the most northerly villages on the island, and Malin Head is Ireland's most northerly point (it is not in Northern Ireland, though more northerly than any part of it). The tip of the Head is known as Banba's Crown, Banba being one of the mythical queens of Ireland.
