Three comments

Now I remember that the 1st part here is also that of the Bridal Jig: https://thesession.org/tunes/1000 As noted in the comments that tune was also recorded by Paddy Killoran and his Pride of Erin Orchestra - where Sweeney played 2nd fiddle. Must have been confusing to keep all these tunes straight!

Re: Rogers

I can’t say I noticed the Bridal in the first part; I hear some similarity now that Rietmann mentions it, but I still don’t see it as particularly strong. Nice 3-part tune though. Paddy Sweeny, despite his dearth of recordings, certainly cut a lot of tunes that seem to have been rare at the time. Such a shame that he recorded so little as a solo player.
