This version is from a New England fiddle music collection.
Both Seamus Ennis and his father played this song as an ending to their performances. It is on his recording: "The Wandering Minstrel," which I submitted and should be listed. Great jig.
Ennis has an "and" in the name of his.
Happy to Meet, Sorry to Part
This pops up on an old Horslips album too, possibly by the same name.
Happy to Meet You, Sorry to Part
The slip jig version of the tune is called "My Mind Will Never Be Easy": http://thesession.org/tunes/191 It’s normally played in G while posted in Amin.
