I have no Idea what this tune is called

I have been trying to remember this tune for almost a year and I was lying in bed yesterday somewhere between asleep and awake and suddenly found myself humming it. I raced to the computer and wrote it down. I have never known what this tune was called and I’m hoping someone here does. Its really catchy and it was stuck in my head for years before it left. I am happy to have found it again.

I’ve heard variations on "Father Dollards Favourite" played close to this tune. Hope this helps a bit.
