Farewell To London

THis is a version of a tune by Brendan McGlinchey.
The original, I believe, is four parts and goes as follys:

D2|GB (3BBB c2BA|GABd edBG|AD (3DDD A3c|BcdB cBAF|\
GABG FGAF|GABG ABcA|dg (3ggg fgag|fdcA G2::\
Bc|dg (3ggg fgaf|gdBG DG,B,G,|CGEC B,DGE|FGAB cABc|\
dg (3ggg fgaf|gdBG DG,B,D|CGEC B,DGB|cAFD G2::\
Bc|dgfg ec (3ccc|fdfa gd (3ddd|bagf gdBG|AD (3FED ABcA|\
dgfg ec (3ccc|fdfa gd (3ddd|(3Bcd gd ceag|1fdcA G2:|2fdcA G3|:B|\
(3ddd ba gafd|gdBG DG,B,G,|CGEC B,DGE|FGAB cABc|\
(3ddd ba gafd|gdBG DG,B,G,|CGEC B,DGB|cAFD G3:|

I can’t remember where I got this, though!
Fun tune, if a bit cerebral.

Did brendan mcglinchy compose this?

A version I got from Milltown 1986
