This is the first hornpipe I've ever tried to write. One night Gerry cooked us all an elegant pancake and fruit dinner, and Peter took one look at the lovely blueberries and said "Bilberries!" We were all charmed by this, and only when I thought of naming a tune after it did I discover that bilberries are a very real cousin of the blueberry. Apparently they grow in South Sligo.
