While looking at the hornpipe of the same name some ring was belling and after some research I found this reel as No. 132 in Breandan Breathnach CRE4.
It has nothing to do with the HP. It may be related to “The man of the house”.
To my ear this is quite similar to the tune on the Battlefield Band “Threads” Album that they call “Snow on the Hills” :
