I happened to stumble across this delightful little hornpipe and was surprised to not find it here. Perhaps it is here somewhere, but if it is it eluded my searches. If it is a duplication I’m sure someone will let me know. My setting is not a direct transcription of the first time through the tune, but an amalgamation of things that happen throughout. A youtube comment traced the tune back to a collection called ‘Old Irish Folk Music Songs’ collected by P.W. Joyce. That’s one I hadn’t heard of.

Re: Dwyer’s

Interesting take, Jack. There is certainly plenty of room to play around with in this one.
