Here’s how fiddler Brendan Bulger plays it first go round, in a little soundclip from the band, the Sprigs. Very swingy.

The Jug of Punch

A banjo-fiddle-piano version of this tune is included on the wonderful LIVE AT MONA’S CD. A group of lower-eastside, NYC musicians in late-night session. Eamon O’Leary (banjo) and Patrick Ourceau (fiddle) lead the procedings on this one…

Paddy Carty’s version

He plays one or two F#s I think. He also changes the rolls on c to cAc and cdc (or plays a roll on c instead of cdc) and plays d (breath) usually instead of the ~d3:
