I got your email Jeeves and I’m confirming that this is the same tune as played by Colin Nea. I’m afraid I don’t have the sleeve notes at hand (I’m living away from home currently and all my CDs are back there). But, as far as I remember, there was no significant information on the tune other than that the Bridge Céilí Band played it. The source may or may not be Ellen Comerford.
