The High Hills Of Tara
Played by the Teetotalers (found on YouTube) together with The Drunken Landlady (thesession.org/tunes/363). In Bremen I also heard Ivory Lady (thesession.org/tunes/5555) as the 3rd in a set, but I think in Dmajor all three.

The High Hills Of Tara, X:2
I’ve transcribed it here from the Teetotallers’ playing, in a (notationwise) more standardised way.
It’s actually in G dorian (not C major).
This tune turned up in sessions recently, with parts reversed.
This is how I hear it being played by Martin Hayes and Kevin Crawford in this clip:
My ears don’t agree with Battle of Aughrim (at least not any setting on the site, no matter which part I play first), hence this addition.
The first two bars of the A part in the Hayes/Crawford clip above are similar the D part (or the 4th part…) of Johnny Cope ( https://thesession.org/tunes/4953 ), and the two parts have more or less the same harmonic material.
