This is a great hornpipe; it’s part of the track on Kevin Crehan’s An bhabog sa bhadog that he calls "The Four Stacks," and would be "The Stack of Rye," right? Thank you for posting it!

Stack of Rye

Here’s basically how Sean Smyth plays it on Redwood. I like the F to G slur they all do in bar 4 of each part—less a note in itself and more of a grace note for landing on the G, a simple articulation that really adds to the tune.
