The Irish folksong "The Cliffs of Dooneen," is a ballad likely about the cliffs around Dooneen Point near Beale, North Kerry in the south west of Ireland. Like many folksongs, does not have a clear point of origin or author. It is a tremendously popular song, though, and in a grand tradition in Irish balladry, speaks of the longing for the Emerald Isle. It's also not clear exactly where the Cliffs of Dooneen are. They may have been just an invention of the author, though based on geographical clues from the song, it seems that they may be a real place as well; probably a high point in either County Kerry or County Clare, overlooking the River Shannon.

Although originally written for traditional folk instruments, I created this arrangement for Harp and Strings (Violin, Viola & Cello).

Darlene,

Thank you so much for the feedback! I have created a D-Major version (with the associated parts).

Lovely piece....However, Irish music is almost never written in this key! If you could transpose this down one half step, to D major, it would put the song into a traditional Irish key.
