Good tune, but why bother with the c sharp, there are no c’s in it. To me, that sounds not like e dorian but e minor. I just like to get it straight.
The key is B minor hence the two sharps in the signature.
No you’re wrong it isn’t.
What key then?
What key then, Bmix?
I don’t think so. Gmaj/Emin-ish, maybe?
I recently had a chance to play this jig in Dublin, together with a certain top-rated flute player. Naomh Padraig Ceili Band played it a few years ago to win the All-Ireland.
I heard this somewhere and scratched it together in this form from recollection. It does seem to be a derivative of Clancy’s Jig as noted in that entry:

I think that’s a classic pipe tune
Different version or different tune?
Since 1980 I play a tune "Katies Rambles" which sounds to me like a quite different version. A simple sound file can be heard here: http://www.anglo-concertina.net/sound/Kathies_Rambles.MP3
As a forgot from which source I learned the tune, I did some internet research a found the tune almost as I play it at: http://www.folktunefinder.com/tune/23668/
Here is the version as I play it:

The B Part is eerily the like B Part of The Sailor’s Wife (https://thesession.org/tunes/3140), albeit in a different key.
