You’ll hear this "Jim Keefe’s" as the last of a three tune set in Track 1 of Jackie Daly’s 1977 Green Linnet recording "Music From Sliabh Luachra."

Jim Keeffe [ sometimes O’Keeffe ] has several polkas and slides attached to his name.
Here’s the first polka in the two videos, posted as "Jimmy Doyle’s" with "Jim Keeffe’s" as an alternative title.
