The Celtic Crane

This is an alternative setting of a tune I learned in the early 1990’s from Brendan Mulvihill. I remembered him calling it "Charlie Lennon’s." Recently, I heard this setting being played by John Carty. I played the Mulvihill setting for him and he confirmed that it was in fact the same tune. Carty’s name for the tune was "The Celtic Crane." Not totally sure, but I seem to recall Carty crediting the authorship of the tune to Arty McGlynn. I have nosed around on the internet looking for references to the tune (including on thesession.org) and haven’t turned anything up. It must be a fairly common tune, I have heard it around. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if it had a couple of other names.
