Please could we try a delightful schottische called "Rue des Prés" composed by Stéphane Durand.
It's covered in a recent topic headed "Tune Info Wanted: Rue de Pres".
Having voted for many tunes in order to learn from you Guys, it's time to pluck up courage and post my first effort. Please make me do it with this tune.

Seems a beautiful tune, I can't work out from my scanty research if it was written along with a poem - or indeed whether it has been adopted or intended for political / historical events? Was it written in the 60s or does it go back further than that?
Finbar Furey wrote this in 1968, originally on a 5 string banjo, although I've always heard it as a whistle tune, which makes it hard for me to see how it would fit on a melodeon - specifically the B that relies heavily on bending the notes. It's been used a lot in TV and films apparently (citation needed ;) )
I got a sheet but no easy to read .. written in F major .. I am not sure it is exactly the original tune ..

I have two versions - both in D. One is clean and one is a transcription of what Finbar plays (more or less) with all the twiddles and chords.

Strikes me that the barlines are in the wrong place in all the versions I've seen - probably just copied and adapted from one source. The bending appears to happen before the barline. So if we move the barlines 1 crotchet to the right it should line up. Although I am newly introduced to the tune, I have listened to a few versions on youtube, and the chords change on the seoond crotchet of the bar.
Also, I hear it in B minor -rather than D.
I do appreciate the pdf uploads - that's always the most important starting place for me, correcting them is no sweat from a good starting point.
On the point of bending the notes, it almost ruins the tune for me - partly because of the frequency of the bends in so many of the versions I've heard, but also because the players seem to abandon accurate intonation when they do play the straight notes eventually. I like my weeping to be more internalised. It might be something I should seek help for from my childhood, or my sax playing past where too many players find how to bend a note too soon. I've always preferred finger bends to lip bends (I do realise that even finger bends require throat / lip subtle changes).

I should have said "in two sharps" - mea culpa was in a rush. Although
You're right about the bar lines in the simple version - the other is other. Someone's corrected it on the Session

There's a version on youtube  that has an interesting piano accordion version (once the whistle's finished his twiddling  >:E )

It's ok, Diatosoldo. We're putting forward suggestions for the tune to be a Tune of The Month, However, thank you for posting the music score.
Also Clive, I wish you a speedy recovery and a Happy Christmas.

"Time Will End" by Jeremiah McLane: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1xpPbicFu0

On Spotify there is the album by Mr McLane called "Smile When You're Ready".  This album contains 2 versions of "Time Will End"; 1 on piano accordion (similar tempo to the example above) and then a much slower piano version.  I have to say that the slower piano version is particularly nice and I would certainly give that a go if this tune makes ToTM.

Nice tune I first herd in played by Sean Mc Comiskey and Jim Eagan who take a different slant at it, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhWJLTdWAes Both versions a pleasure to listen to and If chosen in the future would give an opportunity for AD boxes as well
