Last year at this time, I was doing a little recording for Ricko Donovan. I have some counterpoint on his My Darling Asleep from the Lucky Sevens album.
He told me that Lisdoonvarna has a meet up once a year that attracts hundreds of single men and women. Going to the big social gathering may be what the writer of this tune had in mind.
Here is the pdf of Road to Lisdonvarna.
