The Long Strand
This version looks like a cut & paste job straight from Henrik Norbeck’s index. What a shame.
This tune has an identical 1st part to Sporting Nell, but a different B-part. This is easier to see if you transpose this into Ddor:

I’m not 100% sure about this, but I think the Gan Ainm tune on Altan’s "The Red Crow" might be a Donegal variant of this tune. I can’t find any transcriptions of it on the net, and the recording databases just list it as Ril Gan Ainm, as on the sleeve notes.
