This is a cheerful jig in D major. It was used ( along with 'You're Welcome to Waterford) as part of an inter-regional project linking West Wales and South East Ireland in 2010. The resulting piece of orchestral music 'Crossing the Water' imagines the ferry leaving Neyland, crossing the Irish Sea and arriving at Waterford. Neyland was a small fishing village, until in 1856 it was chosen by Isambard Kingdom Brunell to be the terminus for the Great Western Railway, after which the port grew rapidly.
