The Thatcher’s Mallet

This is listed as Paddy Fahey’s on Claire Keville’s album, "The Daisy Field" but I also found it in Breathnach CRE5.155:
155. Máilléad an Tuíodóra: The Thatcher’s Mallet. This was composed by Peadar Broderick, a musician on
flute and uilleann pipes from Loughrea in County Galway. Paddy Fahey, fiddler and tune composer, played it
for Breathnach: see numbers 7 and 112-114 for Fahey tunes. I’ll add the Breathnach transcription as well.

I looked for this tune on thesession and could not find it here. It seems important enough considering it’s history.
