From the playing of Ciarán Ó Maonaigh and Aidan O’Donnell. The late James Byrne of Glencolmcille is cited as the source, but it is suggested that the tune has been circulated across Donegal. In South Ulster, it’s played as a single reel. Watch Cathal McConnell, Gerry O’Connor and Martin Quinn play the reel version of the tune: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67hmazNQXpk
Con Cassidy of Teelin also played a lovely version.

Con Cassidy’s version of this reminds me a lot of Hugh Gillespie’s Finnea Lasses. Certainly not the same tune but it feels much in the same vein to me
