The Turn

I’ve heard this tune played by John Carty, Maggie Carty and Shane McGowan. The first one is not a hornpipe, it’s a fling, and the two following are slides, they are here at the session.org as jigs, but they’re not.
John Carty says about the set (I asked him on FB):

"Three tunes there starting with the fling called The Turn, then into two slides,
first one is called Carrigkerry (my quote-> or Johnny Boyles) and second is Con Cassidys.
We got all these tunes from west limerick box player Dan Brouder.
The first two are west limerick tunes and the last is named after a Donegal fiddle player."
