This tune is played pretty much as written here, with minor variations, by Tommy Peoples on his latest recording, "Waiting for a Call." I think Alec Finn accompanies him. He follows it with King of the Pipers.

I’m not clear on whether he composed this tune—if anyone knows be sure to speak up.

one of my favorite jigs..

Tommy peoples

according to the album liner this is indeed by Tommy Peoples

This one’s got some nice twists in it. The 1st couple of bars are like Jerry Beaver’s Hat.

and thanks to CelticTurnTable for that uplink, btw.
