As it’s in O’Neill’s I was surprised this wasn’t on thesession, but a search for Shane O’Neill’s didn’t return anything. Hopefully this isn’t a duplicate.

This tune is on Josh Dukes’ "Long Trip Home" (https://thesession.org/recordings/display/3122). His recording doesn’t show up on the listing for this tune since it is "Gan Ainm" on the recording. It’s the first tune on track 11.
