I found this in Breathnach Vol.2 He tells us that it comes from the playing of Tommy Hunt of Sligo.
By the way, it’s a good tune for practicing turns in low E on the flute (getting that damned little pinkie to come up and down at the right time!) Great stuff for struggling flautists, like meself.
I believe this tune is related to Paddy Gone to France (aka. Old Maids of Galway): https://thesession.org/tunes/5373
There are a couple of other obscure versions of the tune which share virtually the same second part. See:
