Tommy Whelan's has been added to 1 tunebook.
Transcribed from Eddie Moloney - Master Musician, disc 1, track 5. It’s labelled Tommy Whelan’s No. 1, but it’s different from the one on disc 2, so 1(a) works for me.
Note that he plays lots of variations and jumps the octaves a bit, so this is just an attempt to get some of that.
Note that this tune has a very similar A part to the Galway Rambler: https://thesession.org/tunes/634
