Gan Ainm Jig
Maybe someone out there knows the name of this tune?????
This is Wee Johnny, also known as the Setting Sun.
Um, Peter, you might want to edit the details for this tune and post it as either Wee Johnny or the Setting Sun, rather than Gan Ainm.

Recording of this tune here:
Josephine Keegan, in her 2004 tunebook "A Drop in the Ocean", calls this jig ‘The Man in the Moon’. Alan Ng, at https://www.irishtune.info/tune/4735/ , also has it as ‘The Rising Sun’. Take your pick.
