Interesting tune—anyone have more info on it?

This is on track 10 of Liz Knowles’ cd, "Making Time". She plays it at a relaxed tempo with lovely ornamentation. In the liner notes to her cd it says this tune is from the collection "Tunes of the Munster Pipers" compiled by Canon James Goodman. I searched a little bit online but didn’t get any hits at the usual places (Fiddler’s Companion, JC’s Tune Finder, etc.), no alternate names, etc.

Another note—I’m guessing at the key. It’s ambiguous to me, but it doesn’t sound major or fully minor.
