March of the Mayomen

For Richard D Cook, as requested.

This is taken from The Chieftains album ‘Year of the French’.
I know nothing more about it, but I do have this niggling thought that I once came across it in an old manuscript somewhere.
It is, of course, a march but if I were to present it here in 2/4 it would have had to be listed as a polka - I’d rather see it as a strathspey!

It would look something like this as a 2/4 march, though it might look different in GHB notation:

By Paddy Moloney?

It could well have been composed by Paddy Moloney, looking at the album blurb. My niggling thought may be at fault.
