This tune is transcribed from the Lunasa recording.
The Stolen Purse
This jig is the 3rd tune in "Christy Barry’s Set & The Connemara Jigs" on "Late… In The Night" by Christy Barry, Conor McCarthy, and Cyril O’Donoghue. Christy plays a bit different version from the one Bill posted though. It’s followed by "The Old Lark in the Morning": https://thesession.org/tunes/1578
Not very sure if the two tunes are really Connemara tunes.

Thierry, cheers for the much better transcription of this little jig.
The Stolen Purse, X:3
Here’s how I learnt it, again from Late… In The Night. Hell of a twisty tune to listen to, but this is how I made sense of it… eventually.
