I got this tune from bb via someone else at a session, so it’s been passed around a fair bit here. See Norbeck’s for a slightly different setting.
Not to be confused with "The Piper On Horseback" https://thesession.org/tunes/1247 which has a very similar 1st part.
I’ve just found another setting that’s closer to this one but less basic, and was probably the original source: http://home.capecod.net/~zouki/webabc/abc.abc/021604.abc
I’ve been playing this tune for about 10 years and haven’t remember the last damn bar for about seven! The rest of it is (amazingly) almost note-for-note what I play. Cheers.
See also the setting below, courtesy of Josephine Keegan from her book "A Drop In The Ocean".

This is one of those tunes that sounds good when Cnats replace some of the C#’s. I learned it from Teada’s setting.
This is not the one that Gerry O’Conner plays.
Really great playing of this tune by Teada http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJifxcbxWA4

Different in B part.
Re: Bonny Anne
What’s the source of your transcription, Rosie-123, and are you sure it it correct ? I count your 2nd part as having 17 bars, which to my knowledge would make it unique in Irish music. I have no idea how people would dance to that, and that is the reason for my query.
