#1175 in O’Neill’s. I’ve learned it in D as I figure that’s how it’s played most often out at sessions, now I’m off to learn it in G, as played on Music at the House, Brendan Bulger, Marty Fahey, and Kathleen Gavin.

I’ve always played this tune in Bb.

Paddy O’Snap’s, X:2

The setting from the Kohler’s repository. They listed it as a contra dance. This setting is close to X1, although the grace notes are nice.
