"Mike Flanagan’s Jig"
Here’s me rescuing one 32 bar jig that got caught up with another, "The Champion", in a medley tagged by "The Flanagan Brothers" as "The Wanderer", which is already entered on site here:

As too is the second tune in that set:

I have done a bit of searching, hoping to find this tune, as the 32 bar jig it is, anywhere, in a collection, in print or online, but without success. I’ll add other takes on it, including those surviving in that 2-jig medley… Personally, I prefer those two jigs better on their own. I’m adding it also with the hopes, since I’ve had no luck there, that someone else might have a name or names, or have some history to add for this.
