A Curious Denis Murphy Jig

This is the title given for the tune on Mick O’Brien & Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh’s "Deadly Buzz". It says in the liner notes of said CD that Caoimhín spent a summer working at the Traditional Music Archive in Dublin (one of my all-time favorite flute players, Michael Tubridy, got him the job). My guess is that he heard this tune on a recording that bore only the label "Denis Murphy". Hence the lack of a proper name for the tune. If anybody has an actual name for this one, please put in your 2 cents below…

Hello there, I myself became curious about the tune and heard Gerry Harrington and Billy Clifford(Julia) play and refer to it as "The trip to the quarry" a lovely tune indeed
