I have this as the 2nd tune on a recording from 1975 on the Leader label entitled ‘The Rakes’. Lucy Farr is playing with Paul Gross & Michael Plunkett (fiddles) with Reg Hall on piano.
my own transcription varies slightly in places i.e.
‘A’ music bar 4, and ‘B’ music bar 14: || egB BAG ||
‘B’ music bar 3 || aba g>e || bars 9 & 11: || a>f g>e ||
Key: G

Lucy Farr’s no. 1 is also here.

sort of…track 6 has a medley of two tunes in 7/8…the first is an adaptation/mutation of this lovely jig, and the second is equal treatment of The Connaught Heifers…
