This post was to test the [W:HTML 5] embedding thing but it did not work. And so there is a better mp4 version (25MB) and a full screen version (120MB) available.

The music is a version of The Maids of Mitchelstown by [W:The Bothy Band].

Update:
The HTML 5/ MP4 thing seems to be alive and well. Next stop the [W:Ogg] version.

Updated update: There is an Ogg version now and it is working on my Mac with Safari, FireFox, Opera and Chrome browsers. And in FireFox on Ubuntu in Virtual Box too.
So farewell Flash!
