Joe Burke and Mike Rafferty recorded this reel as a straight G major tune with all the F notes sharp, informing that’s how the Old Ballinakill Ceili Band did it in 30’s. It seems Paddy Carty was from the next parish of East Galway.

Watch and listen to Joan Hanrahan and Dymphna O’Sullivan’s lovely fiddle and concertina duet playing of the tune: http://comhaltas.ie/music/detail/comhaltaslive_266_5_joan_hanrahan_dymphna_osullivan
Beauty of East Clare music
Joan Hanrahan and Dymphna O’Sullivan’s duet playing reminds me of that of Mary MacNamara and Martin Hayes still in their teens: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TABSf0AcdVQ
This tune is in the Gunn Book (Fermanagh 1865) as Miss Huntley’s Reel
