My interest in ITM started some 35+ years ago relying mainly on books obtained through my local library. I’ve recenly looked back at my earlier collection and this is one of the tunes from it. I regret now not having made a note of its origin, can anyone help? It relates strongly with ‘A Fig for a Kiss’ submitted June 9th 2002 by Josh Kane but is sufficiently different for me to submit it here. The chord structure is almost identical but the arrangement of notes are not.

Deirdre’s Fancy is a (even more) related slip, too
Yes! Deirdre’s ‘A’ music is vertually Dublin’s ‘A’ music. I will be putting all three together out of interest. Watch this space!!
Fancy a Kiss from Deirdre in Dublin

Could play each separate tune twice or treat it as a six part slip jig.
I play "Dublin Streets" in a set with the ubiquitous "Butterfly" slip jig. As a harpist, I find slip jigs easier to play at speed than reels, and these two have a nice light bouncy feel to them.

khutchins, so do I :-). May be, because this couple is really perfect!
I know this tune as "The Streets of Dublin" (Much the same, I know) and have been learning to play a two part version on The Harp.
I’m delighted to find the six part version here and I’ll likely add it to my repertoire for fiddle and mandolin too. Not that I keep lists or anything like that but you know what I mean. ;-)
