Another Brian Finnegan tune

This is the middle tune in a set that Brian plays with the Brian Finnegan Trio. He plays the repeated notes in the B part with all kinds of finger acrobatics, but they seem more like individual notes than rolls so I notated them this way.

Does anyone know what this tune is called?

Sorry Wayne, this tune is definitely not Back to Belfast. Not sure what it’s called, but the ‘Belfast’ tune is also known as Nipperquinn’s, and then Liz Carroll’s tune and Eroticon VI.

The tune is written by Brian, called The Oliver Curve, written for another whistle player.

Yea, its called "The Oliver Curve", for Joey Oliver the 422 whistle player from Hexham. Apparently Joey’s a top-notch mathematician who’s discovered an algebraic curve.
