Couldn’t find this among the pile of tunes already here. Don’t know anything about it except that it’s the second tune played by Oisin MacDiarmada and Louise Mulcahy, after the Tinker’s Stick, on this clip:

There’s some confusion about whether the melody pops up to an A or a G# in the fourth measure of the B part. It seems that you could do either.

Does anyone have any info on this tune?

G# ??

I meant to say that the melody pops up to either an A or G. G# would be fairly weird.

so it is! thanks!
