Kevin Burke used to play this tune quite a lot.I think it might be on one of his older tuition tapes.
Good Luck.

The Castlebar Tramp

This seems to go well with the High Reel. Nice tune.

does this one have a relationship to the Castlebar Traveller that Tom Morrison recorded (in a set with Dunmore Lasses), which to my mind feels a lot like the Laurel Tree.

Slightly different version

I got this from Uilleann piper Brian Stafford from N. Ireland who currently lives in York. He tends to play this on whistle.
