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.

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.
