My music for Laird of Milton's Daughter lists the tunes as: In Triumph,
Royal Irish, Harrington's Hall, and Dennis Don't Be Threatening. Just
curious - as to how a tune called "Royal Irish" wound up in a dance where
the person the dance is named after has no Irish connection and objects to
same? I'll make a note of this for future reference.
