love this tune. thank you gian marco.

Great tune! I know the tune by this title, but I believe a fairly similar version has been already posted under another title which I have forgotten.

Slightly different version

I got this from Uilleann piper Brian Stafford from N. Ireland who currently lives in York. He tends to play this on whistle.
