Foster, Mick. Traditional Irish music: All Ireland Senior Champion (1960-1970) piano accordion. - Auckland: Pye Goldengroove GSGL10487, 1972. - LP, stereo (12in.)
This Irish-originated album is the New Zealand release. Presumably it resembles the original album.
Most of the title names here have been discovered with TunePal, and some with Folk Tune Finder.
I could not find ‘Croghan Hill’ in Alan Ng’s or on The Session, so infer it may be Mick Foster’s own composition; however, it’s uncredited on the album, so only he knows.

From The Fiddler’s Companion site:

CROGHAN HILL [1]. AKA and see “The Castle,” “God Speed the Plow,” “Ireland in New York,” “Speed the Plow.” Irish, Reel. G Major. Standard. AABB. The tune is in Breathnach’s CRÉ II (1985) as “Speed the Plow.” Source for notated version: fiddler Pat Neilly [Bulmer & Sharpley]. Bulmer & Sharpley (Music from Ireland), 1976, Vol. 4, No. 1. Mallinson (Enduring), 1995; No. 18, pg. 8.
