‘The Old Rustic Bridge by the Mill’ is a tune that is familiar for reasons unknown – probably as a result of hearing at many various times. There definitely was no conscious effort to try to learn the words.
Upto last week, it was just a tune.
Following my walkabout in Castletownroche, it is now also a particular bridge and a particular mill.
That Tuesday, I was definitely able to say – ‘I didn’t know that before’ – and any day when we learn something new is a good day.
