Dot to dot

I am surprised no one has complained about the dots on this tune.
I also notice it bears a close resembalnce to the Leitrim Fancy.

Moran’s Hornpipe

This can be found on the 1958 LP ‘Jackie Roche, Irish Violin’ under the title "Shield’s Hornpipe" (mistakenly given as "Sheild’s" in the recording database.
