A different tune, to my ears, than the "Maid in the Cherry Tree" posted here by Kenny some time ago. This is based on the version in O’Neill’s and the playing of a fiddling friend of mine here in Helena.
The Maid in the Cherry Tree
A perky little thing… at speed ‘tis fun fun fun…
The very different ‘other’ one:

The London Lasses
The reel that John Carty plays after "The Galway (or Galloway) Hornpipe" listed on his 2005 album "I Will if I Can" as "The Maid in the Cherry Tree" is also known as "The London Lasses"
‘The Maid In The Cherry Tree’ is the first tune in the ‘Brolum Set’ from the CD ‘In Concert’ with Barra MacNeils.
I play the second tune in the set, but i don’t know it’s name…….so anyone.
Found out myself……The Red Haired Lass
