Thanks to Drifter supplying the full music here’s my Too Ra Loo Ra Loo Ral - an Irish Lullaby. I should do better with some practice knowing the words. But ....

Yep, this song is called The Rising of the Moon, but it's not the Rising of the Moon that is the song for March. Yes, the March song Rising of the Moon is very close in melody as the Wearing of the Green.

There's probably more than the two on this thread if a person looked really hard. There's also lots of songs that use the same melody with different words and different song titles.

Very good Dezzy. i was going to play it on a tremolo missing out the accidentals as you have done I then noticed one of the reeds was out of tune. Thinking I could easily fix that I took the covers off and started filing the reed which did not see to be making many difference. I was filing the wrong reed!! I now have two reeds to fix.
When I try to play this tune from memory I always drift into "When Irish eyes are smiling"

Yep, TooRaLooRaLooRa does sound like Irish Eyes Are Smiling especially at the beginning. It;s very easy to slip right in to that song.
