The setting is from my local session.
It’s one of Leeds Ceili Band’s tunes, which I always fail to pick up in the session and have been itching to learn. Thanks, Mark.
My version for flute and whistle:

Jody’s Heaven - Garden of Butterfly
In this album, Munster Bacon is named :"Munster Grass"
Here’s a nice example of the tune being played by concertina player Breda Shannon and her brother Aidan on flute from Ballinameen, Co. Roscommon. They play this tune following “The Man in the Bog."
Great tune ……………………..!
Munster Bacon version
Here’s roughly what I play (though I’ll often throw in stuff from other versions, too), based on a version posted many years ago by flute player Mike Casey on the website of his now defunct North Carolina-based band Cucunandy.
