Old Banish Misfortune

Not to be confused with the much more popular session tune Banish Misfortune (https://thesession.org/tunes/9) this one is from O’Neill’s 1001 (#53). It obviously has some similarities–the second section is nearly identical, and the third section is at least strongly reminiscent. I don’t know whether this was just a poorly transcription on the part of O’Neill, or whether this is really a distinct but related tune. But, adding it for completeness.
