About X:1

@ Mr G. Cunningham, what is your source ?

McFadden’s Own

This appears, as said in "Bank of Turf" liner notes (Tommy Fitzharris & Donal McCague), in O’Neill’s Dance Music of Ireland as no 558

McFadden’s Own, X:2

S:Truckley Howl track 1

McFadden’s Own, X:3

S: played in Eb, Tommy Fitzharris & Donal McCague "Bank of Turf" track 2
Tommy Fitzharris & Donal McCague don’t play the 1st bar when they go back to the 1st part. They rather use a pattern already played the first time, end of 2nd bar : dB | AGFD E. It explains the rather unusual way to write the reprise…

McFadden’s Own, X:4

S:played in Eb 03:31 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8uVsNnIH_k (Riches of Clare)

As this setting is played in Eb in the above source, I decided to transpose it to G, as I already have posted another one in D. I don’t know if this tune is played in sessions using that key, but "historically" it must rather be played in D as witnessed in the O’Neill’s Dance Music of Ireland.
