Sean Maguire’s/Lomanach Cross

I just learned this great tune. I’d like to know, anyone play this single, or the first part double and the turn single? When I had it on Friday we could not decide about double or single so I’m curious. I was looking up the history for the tune and found from the FC that on the Tribute to Packie Duignan tape, Patsy Hanley plays the tune AAB AAB A. How do you do it?

I have this in a set after Josephine Keegan’s Cap and Bell.
