As played by Vincent Campbell, who attributes it to John Doherty:
It has quite a few similarities to what is posted here as The Highland Reel (https://thesession.org/tunes/6263); I’ve posted it as a separate tune because of the different key (although there are no C#s in this basic setting, Mr. Campbell does play some C#s and G#s as part of variations, for example when he plays the penultimate bar like |gffe fdec|) and because of the last line which sets it somewhat apart IMO. But that’s probably a matter of argument.
Both may well be related to The Devil In The Kitchen (https://thesession.org/tunes/1746) anyway.
This is definitely a reel setting of "The Devil in the Kitchen", albeit a very powerful one. Vincent Campbell plays this very well on his "The Purple Heather" album as well as several other YouTube videos.
Paul Anderson plays the strathspey Devil in the Kitchen and the Titanic reel together on YouTube.
