It is similar to “kiss the maid behind the barrell”.

Song, not reel

I think there’s a mistake here, Gian Marco. I agree that the tune you’ve posted does indeed look like a version of “Kiss The Maid Behind The Barrel”. I used to have an original LP recording of “The Russell Family Of Doolin”. I no longer have it, but I am fairly certain that this particular reel was not on that original recording. What I am 100% certain about though, is that “St. Kevin of Glendalough” was a song, and not a tune. I could even sing you a verse of it! Which recording of Miko does this come from? If it came from a re-issue, or compilation, then someone
( yet again ) has been careless with listing the tracks.

there was a mistake, sorry.

I’d say it’s as much like Kiss The Maid as it is like Trim the Velvet.
