O’Carolan’s tune, ABC source:

This is my first time submitting a tune. I sincerely hope I did it all correctly.

I’m new to O’Carolan’s work. I wasn’t sure how to classify this tune, but "Carolan’s Draught" has a similar feel and was classified as a reel, so I went with that. Also the original ABC file’s time sig. matched.

I first heard this on Jacqueline Mccarthy’s "The Hidden Note."

You beat me to it. I was about to add a transcription…
