Handy with the bottle

I got this tune from the Craobh Rua recording ‘Soh it is’. Unfortunately I don’t have any info on the tune as I bought it from itunes. Anyone know it?

Handy With The Bottle

The tune is written by Michael Cassidy, Craobh Rua’s fiddler. A friend of the band was being annoyed by a drunk in a pub, so she clobbered him with an empty bottle. Michael wrote and named the tune in her honor. Correction: the fourth note in measures 3, 7, and 15 is a G, not F#.
