This reel appears in O’Neill’s Dance Music of Ireland - 1001 Gems (1907), p. 109, no. 597, as The Wedding, An Posad.
If the reel above, posted by "Moxhe" appears in "O’Neill’s" in 1907, it should be obvious that Donald Shaw can’t have copyright on it. Donald’s "Wedding" reel is here, but this ain’t it. 2 different tunes with the same name: https://thesession.org/tunes/518
Also, The Wedding Reel is the incorrect title and the composer doesn’t like it being misnamed.
Lunasa does a great version. Find the sheet music here. http://www.folktunefinder.com/tunes/100205
That tune is not this Wedding Reel Nancy - it’s actually MacLeod’s Farewell.
