The Top Of The Hill

From the Gunn ms, Fermanagh 1865 and recorded by Francie Rasdale on Hidden Fermanagh Vol 1.
This unusual tune is likely an old step dance. The only other Irish tune I have found with this structure is ‘Is the Big Man Within?’ in the Set Dances section of O’Neill’s 1001 (no. 965)
