I’ve taken Kenny’s abc’s from Patrick O’Connor https://thesession.org/tunes/4187 X2, because this is a different tune to that one. Seán Leahy and Jeremy Spencer have this tune on Entanglement, but they Call it The Hermit from Killarney. However that is the name Paudie O’Connor gave to the first tune on track 1 of Different State https://thesession.org/tunes/2030. This tune is the 2nd tune.
A variation on this tune, but listed as a hornpipe, can be found in the Pádraig O’Keeffe manuscripts on the ITMA site. IMHO the transcription is of a polka. As with most polkas, POK didn’t give his pupils a name for the tune.
