The Holloway Road Fling

This tune comes from flute duet album "Double-Barrelled" by Kieran O’Hare and John Skelton. Obviously, it’s a reel setting of "The Cat that Ate the Candle" (not F. Kennedy tune) or "The Cow that Ate the Blanket":

Actually I haven’t got the recording yet, but the sample clip is generously long, so I could learn it. Both jig and reel settings are recorded in a set.

“The Holloway Road Fling” ~ as a highland fling

It’d work, just ignore the :||: repeats and swing it.

Here are the jig relatives in triplicate, repeating slainte’s above:

Don’t like this as a fling. Maybe as a double reel it’d be ok.
