Nine comments

This is one of the nameless tunes I recently learned in Leeds, Yorkshire. I’ve never heard it before, but it’s quite easy to pick up. Any information on this tune will be welcome.

I’ve heard it played here too. I think it’s "Thompson’s".

Brid Harpur’s

Kevin Griffin recorded this on his solo album as Brid Harpur’s. This track featured a duet with Sharon Shannon.

That’s because it appeared on this recording https://thesession.org/recordings/display/1348 - see track 5. I was listening to Brenda McCann’s CD Inishkeeragh the other day and recognised this one as the 2nd jig on track 2, entitled "Collins".
