Here’s the other (first) half of Michael O Rooney’s set on the CD Traditional Music on Fiddle, Banjo & Harp. The second tune is Gort na Mona, which has been entered before.
Tigh Raifeartaigh (another setting)
This great Michael Rooney composed tune is demonstrated by Garry Shannon on the Comhaltaslive programme (28 March to 3 April 2005) at http://www.comhaltaslive.ie. However, he plays it in G as shown below. On checking Michael’s CD "Draiocht" I found that he plays it in "F" so "you pays your money and makes your own choice" !!

That G one is a different tune - Gort Na Mona - not a different setting of this one, altho’ they’re both v similar.
