Is this tune related to Winnie Hayes?
I learned this tune from a recording by the short-lived group General Humbert. They paired it with "Old Joe’s Jig" and their version went:

X: 5 "Old Tipperary"
This transcription, simplified, is from the playing of Robert McGowran, recorded here:
"Robert MacGowran & Ruairi KellyBasically: Traditional Irish Music - Whistle And Guitar"
Track 5, the third tune in a set of 3 jigs, with the emphasis on showing some of Robert’s variations, such as those that also offer the opportunity for a wind player to catch a breath, the slow-quick bits, such as the two in the 7th bar of the A-part ~ | f2 d e2 d | ~ which can be and are also played ~ | fdd edd | ~ or, the B-part, bar 3 & 4 ~ | dgg d2 g | f/g/ag f2 a | ~ | dgg dgg | f/g/ag fga | ~ compare with other transcriptions for more examples…
While no rolls are given in this notation, preferring to leave that up to free choice, GAG is usually rolled in one form or another, which would be notated as ~G3
My original comment seems to have been truncated. Although it was 9 years ago, I think I meant to say that the title in English was "The Old Tipperary" jig. The version I posted would almost certainly have come from Mick Moloney’s first solo album, "We Have Met Together", which I seem to remember was the first ever LP of traditional Irish music I bought.
old tipperary jig
I learned this from Cran, who played it after the Old Hag you Have killed me. Great set!
