Mix, I went through several clips a while back checking on the similarity. I remembered that one because of the way the euphonium player prepared her embouchure for the piece - but didn’t notice it was 3/4 !
I was keeping quiet about the wikipedia page as I thought the link to Irish dance music was getting [even more] tenuous. I would be interested to hear it played as a slide though.

Wouldn’t worry about that. There’s been so much cross-imigration within these islands over the years that it’s often difficult to establish whether a tune is "pure drop" Irish or just "Irish" by adoption. And who cares? I certainly don’t!
I knew "When Daylight Shines" and I also knew the "Carnival of Venice" tune. But I’d never noticed the connection, so I’m glad you pointed it out.
