The Dunboyne Straw Plaiters

From the playing of Colm Gannon and Jesse Smith, who dug out this tune from P. W. Joyce’s "Old Irish Folk Music and Songs" (1909). Listen to them play it: https://myspace.com/jessesmithandcolmgannon/music/song/the-dunboyne-straw-platiers-the-wheels-63018094-68883560

It’s actually a version of The Holy Land: http://thesession.org/tunes/616 But I believe it is quite different from the better-known version and deserves a separate entry.
