McGettrick’s - maybe………..

This came from a session tape from the Willie Clancy week some years ago. It’s a slightly different setting of a reel on the Matt Molloy & Sean Keane recording "Contentment Is Wealth". The problem is , that on the sleeve notes, it lists 3 reels, "McGettrick’s" being the first, "McDonagh’s" the second, and "Tommy Gunn’s" the third, but there are only 2 reels on the recording.
This is the first one [ almost ], and the 3rd is correct, but this could be "McGettrick’s" or possibly "McDonagh’s", depending on which of the 2 tunes was left out.
[ Of course, now that Matt himself is a contributer to the site, [ ? ] he could possibly clear this up for us……….. [or could he ? ]
