Four comments

This reel was composed by J. Scott Skinner. It can be hard at first, but it just requires a bit of position work. For bars A8 and B4, I start by playing the A with my first finger, and then sliding up to the E really quickly after my 4th finger has played the D#.

Jerry Holland’s

transcription from track #1 on Caitlín Nic Gabhann & Ciarán O Maonaigh’s recording "Caitlín & Ciarán"

Charlie Hardie, X:3

Got this from the playing of Caitlín Mic Gabhann & Ciarán Ó Maonaigh. They recorded it on their album "Caitlín & Ciarán" under the name "Jerry Holland’s" but if you watch the video linked below, they said they learned it from Jerry and only recently learned that the actual name was Charlie Hardie’s.
