Cleaning the Hen House

Fun little ditty - I like the energy that Jimm Noonan plays this one with on the Maple Leaf. Inspired me to learn it. This sounds kind of like a Josie McDernott Reel that I’ve heard (not the one that follows it on the Maple Leaf album) anybody know if this is a Josie McDermott reel?

I like the tune played by Michaél O’ Raghallaigh on his album Inside Out. You almost hear the chattering of the hens.
It’s in the key of E dorian, I suppose.
