Paudie O’Connor calls it Captain Bing on his first excellent CD. He plays it in D.
Re: The Pope’s Toe
Beginish called this reel Templeglentuan. Breathnach had it with the same name in Irish when he collected it from Denis Murphy in 1966. I believe there is a setting in the Pádraig O’Keeffe manuscripts at ITMA.
