Sounds like an old jig I have on a CD compilation of early trad recordings played by a banjo player (Martin Gaffney?). Can’t find the CD at the moment, as I recently moved house. I think the jig was called “The Mysteries of Knock”.
It sounds like part of Cherish the Ladies, in a different key.
Longnote, I too know this one as the Mysteries of Knock. Can’t remember who I learned it from, though.
This tune is clearly related to “Ladies of Carrick” :
It’s in Altan’s “Another Sky”, track 7 under the title “The Pretty Young Girls of Carrick”, 3rd tune of the track.
It’s also played by Dick Hensold, american player of northumbrian small pipes, on his CD “Big music for Northumbrian small pipes”, with a great bunch of variations 🙂
