The music for this dance, Pam and Forbes Campbell, was composed by John Barnes and the dance was devised by Helen McGinley.

The title was thought of by Hazel Convery as Forbes and Pam live in Crannagh Park, Dublin.

They are presented to Pam and Forbes Campbell on the occasion of their Golden Wedding Anniversary, 26th July 2008, with very best wishes from all their friends in the Dublin Scottish Country Dance Club.

The track of 1st Lady in bars 1-7 represents the figure 5 (her partner's track is a mirror image) and bars 9-16 represents the figure 0.
Diagonal Rights and Lefts is Pam's favourite formation.
