This tune was collected by Jack Wade from flute player Arthur Kelly from Ring Commons in North County Dublin. Kellys brother Joe played fiddle too. Theres a bunch of these North Dublin tunes in CRE 4. Look under the contributions of Jack Wade. Some great old tunes.

Shouldn’t that b flat in bar 7 be an octave lower? Good tune.I just played it through using b naturals and it sounded great. Try it.

Yes you are right. I made a balls of the original submitting. I corrected the ABC version but I need to figure out how to fix the shhet music.
The B should be in the lower octave and all the B’s are natural.
T

If the key is indicated correctly by the B flat, then it’s in d minor (or aeolian). D mix would have an F sharp.
