The Ravelled Hank Of Yarn

This is from a collection published by Ted Furey (‘The Rocky Road to Dublin’ Vol. 2. 1975). It’s clearly a different tune from those posted here under the same title. Any explanation?

Ravelled Hank Of Yarn, X:2

There are a few notes in the Callaghan’s in D
(https://thesession.org/tunes/8518, see the second setting from Staimh)
that I really like, so I added them into the G version.
There are other bits of this G version that are very nice.
Altogether, I might start playing it this way.

Cal Callaghan was an uncle of Padraig O’Keeffe from whom he got a lot of his music.
