The Dairy Maid

Here is a second tune known as “Dairy Maid”, which appears in O’Neill’s Music of Ireland: 1850 Melodies (1903), p. 207, no. 1101 and in 1001 Gems (1907), p. 63, no. 292.
In 1850 Melodies, this tune is regarded as “2nd setting”, but I post it as a different tune.

The Dairy Maid (G major)

This setting also appears – in a very similar version, also in G major – in The Petrie Collection of Irish Music, part II, ed. Charles Villiers Stanford (1905), p. 150, no. 597 as “The Dairy-Maid’s Wish”.

Could anyone recommend any tunes that would pair up nicely with this (in a set obviously)? Thanks
