The set they play is track 1 from their (“Coisir”) CD called “On the Right Track” posted here by me a few years ago: https://thesession.org/recordings/1984. The tune in question here is called Mrs. Malaprop.

Many thanks for the name Jason, do you know if it’s trad and if there’s a known composer?

It’s also on Claire Mann’s first solo recording: http://www.footstompin.com/products/cds/claire_mann

According to the notes, this jig is Claire Mann’s own composition. She writes “the final tune is written for my Grandmother, who has a hilarious knack of getting words muddled up.”

No problem for the name. Coisir came to Philadelphia a few years ago when I was going to college there, and their CD I purchased at that time still manages to find its way into my CD player fairly frequently.

Thanks slainte for the info. I knew I had heard the tune somewhere else, but it may have taken me a while to come up with the other source.

Sorry, the last B in the eighth bar of each part should be a c. I’ve corrected the abc’s
