Slide play this one on their "Flying Pig" album as second tune in the first set (the fourth tune is Ní Fíos (unknown) as well). I think it sounds best when played not too fast.

Aha! Money in Both Pockets

I have just written this tune in on the comments to what is listed in this forum as "Money in Both Pockets", for that is the name I know this tune under. My version is slightly different, but it´s the same tune alright. I got the name from Anders Trabjerg, Danish accordeon player based in Galway. He knows his stuff.

Ownie Davis’

This appears on Seamus Connolly’s recording as "Ownie Davis’ Reel". It’s also in Martin Mulvihill’s collection as "Davy’s Reel". You can find more transcriptions online under those names.

@ Time@Copenhagen, he might know his stuff but I think he’s getting mixed up. I suspect he got the tune off Sean Ryan, Kathleen Ryan & Pat Lyons "Back Home to the Cliffs of Mohir", where this tune is followed by Money In Both Pockets http://thesession.org/tunes/5186 in a set called "McGreevey’s".
