Beautiful jig by Gavin Marwick. Transcription based on the tune as played by Grainne Murphy on her *Short Stories* album.

For those of us that are G# impaired (e.g. on D whistles), here’s the tune in Gmajor:

This is the ABC transcription that bdh so helpfully put in his comments. I am just posting as a setting in the dots for those who read sheet music better than ABC.
All kudos and thanks to bdh for this tune!
