The Fermanagh Curves (jig, Cathal McConnell)

Hello,
I am currently learning this pretty piece.
This is the third in a set of three: "Scotland-Ireland, The Hangover, The Fermanagh Curves" by Cathal McConnell ("Long Expectant comes at last", 2000). Heard in a conference on Irish music (June 2012, in French):

I really like the sequence of the last two:
