Tune at the at the opening and closing credits of ‘The Green Linnet’

Hey folks,

This is a long shot, but does anyone know the name of the tune that plays during the opening and closing of the credits for that RTE programme with Barney Mc Kenna and Tony Mac Mahon back in the 70’s called ‘The Green Linnet’? Great simple little tune. I’ve been just calling it ‘the green linnet’ for a while now but there seems to be a few tunes of that name.
