name of this reel please

this reel just popped up in my head, not sure that I’ve remembered it correctly - uncertain about
the key, it sounds like Dmin but has both F nats and F#’s. I thought it might be the Broken Pledge but a search in TUNES proves it isn’t.
1st part -
ADDF#AGF#|ECCG,CEG|ADDDd|efedcAdd [and repeat]
and the bpart -
df#dadf#d|cecgcec|df#dadf#d|f#aged [and repeat]
its possible theres a 3rd part that I’ve forgotten!
thanks in anticipation……………..

Could it be The Wheels of the World?

In some settings there is a third part which is a sort of mirror image of the second - starting on a c figure and with a d rocking pedal figure in the second bar.

thanks Stiamh - yes there are definitely similarities but I’m not entirely convinced……………….

Re: name of this reel please

I agree with Stiamh - it is a version of The Wheels of the World. None of the settings posted here quite match yours, but there are several versions. As Stiamh says, there is a 3-part version where the C-part ‘mirrors’ the-B part (in terms of chord structure), usually played AABC in my experience. There is a 2-part version that lacks the C part, and another 2-part version (as played by Kevin Burke) where the B-part is the ‘mirror’ version, equivalent to the C-part in the 3-part version. Also, the top note in the A-part is sometimes played as F#, sometimes as F-natural (as in Kevin Burke’s version).

I have added the version I have in my head to the tunes section: https://thesession.org/tunes/1010#setting29800

Re: name of this reel please

Creadur, yes your version is pretty damn close, thanks. The tune in my head is played on accordion not fiddle,
and I’m wondering if I heard Dermot Byrne play it on a past Altan recording. I ‘m going to check out Youtube see if I can find the Kevin Burke version that you mention
