Si Bheg Si Mor is only a two=part tune.  If you find more, they are merely
more recent variations.  The melody is based on an older air called The
Bonnie Cuckoo which can be found in Bunting's 3rd collection (1840).  You
can hear the "cuckoos" in the melody.

Does anyone have an eight parted version of Si Bheg Si mor, in ABC
format (or image), they could forward on to me?

Thanks!
