Leeds piano accordion player Helen Flaherty is the source of this hornpipe. Helen is one of mighty players of the city and loves to play modern compositions with the old-fashioned feel, such as Martin Mulhaire’s "The Golden Keyboard" and Vincent Broderick’s "Spider’s Web." I didn’t know anything about the tune, but a bit of research shows that it was penned by Tippeary fiddler Sean Ryan.

Mike Rafferty gives an alternative title of "Kevin Rowsome’s" as he learned the tune from Kevin, grandson of Leo Rowsome.
