Recorded by Denis Murphy as Phillip O’Neill’s. Neat perky jig.
A nice jig. Where did you get "Quinn’s", enirehtac?
Comhaltas Archive. It’s under Philip O’Neill’s.
If you get a free account, you can paste the link to go directly to the jig - it’s only 1 min long, but nice (without an account, you can only listen to 31 seconds). The second one’s 31 seconds.

This version appears in O’Neill’s Dance Music of Ireland - 1001 Gems (1907), p. 28, no. 69, as Philip O’Neill, Pilib Ua Niall.
According to the Fiddler’s Companion, there is no other title and Philip O’Neill was Captain Francis O’Neill’s eldest child, baptised on 17 January 1835. It seems that only O’Neill published this tune, twice (1850 Melodies, 1903, no. 796 and 1001 Gems). In these 2 publications, the initial pickup bar is missing in both A and B parts. In 1850 Melodies, the name “F. O’Neill” is written down as the composer.
