Barney McKenna’s banjo band’s medley?!

Hi everyone!

I wonder if anyone know the name of the first reel in this medley:

I know that the two later reels are The Sligo Maid and The High Reel, but I have never heard the first one!

Would be very grateful if someone could give me the name!

@oldstrings: Barney McKenna, and Gerry O’Connor too, I think?
No idea about the other guys..

I think that’s Mary Shannon, Sharon’s sister, in the front row.

Micky McKenna (RIP) was an absolute gent and cousin of Barneys is in there too. Used to play smashing tenor guitar too. Think there’s an annual music weekend for him in Trim. Anyone know dates?
