Paidin O Raifeartaigh?

Patrick Street’s new album ‘On the fly’, first set of slip jigs Na Ceannabhain Bhana and Paidin O Raifeartaigh. I’ve never heard this version of Paidin O Raifeartaigh.Is the tune known by another name?

Pandeen O’Rafferty

I found it in M.M. Cole’s One Thousand Fiddle Tunes as Pandeen O’Rafferty


that tune isn’t even close to the Patrick Street tune, which is sort of like this:

X: 1
T: Páidin O Raifeartaigh
M: 6/8
L: 1/8
R: jig
K: Gmaj

The tune posted doesn’t seem to match the tune of the same name from the album. Anyone know the reel version of Mulvihills that’s listed on the album? It’s in the same set as Down the broom and The Gatehouse Maid
