I thaught it was composed by Erwan Menguy but I read somewhere in the YouTube comment section that he got it from John Brosnan, box player from Kilcumin (co. Cork).
The tune is surprisingly easy to play, even at high speed. Erwan Menguy plays it on a F whistle.

I’ve never heard it called anything but “Brosnan’s”,
which is what it is named on John Brosnan’s record
(unless someone has edited the title of that track).
So I wonder where the name “The Yellow Flowers” came from?
Damien Rogeau who posted this couldn’t have looked at the full “Youtube” titles.
If you look at the whole introduction, it has :
"The Yellow Flower’s reels
( J.Brownan’s / The Road to Lizelec’h - E.Menguy / Amazing Race - E. Menguy)
“J. Brownan’s” = J. Brosnan’s - would be a reasonable supposition.
If you look at the track listings posted here for the CD, track #10 is as follows :
The Yellow Flowers
The Green Fields Of Pont Cariou
The Road To Lizelec’h
Note the title of the 3rd tune. They’ve changed the order of the tunes on the Youtube clip, and mangled up John Brosnan’s name in the process.
You would need someone with the CD to confirm that “The Yellow Flowers” is a different tune altogether.
Well, that is really confusing!
But thank you for the informations, I’ll try to edit the tracklist if I manage to get the real names and order of the tunes.
I found the album version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qg7CckFNxpk
The order of the tunes are different than in the first video and probably match with the tracklist here on The Session.
Alright, I think everything is fixed now :
[X1] is now the real “The Yellow Flowers” slow reel (wich is the first tune of the video in my previous comment), I believe the composer is Erwan Menguy but I can not be sure of that.
I moved the setting of John Brosnan’s reel here https://thesession.org/tunes/3081#setting37905
