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.

it’s exactly like Eddie Kelly’s, no?

Eddie Kelly’s? Well, no, not "exactly," though it shares many of the same phrases. Two distinct tunes, made out of the same cloth.

Horslips setting

The second setting is what I remind of the Horslips album "Happy to meet, Sorry to part"
