I think this goes really well on the banjo. De Dannan done a version after Mick Hand’s (Sandmount Reel) called The Hills of Clogher. Some slightly variations but basically the same.

I have to learn them all some day.
I am a new member who loves Irish songs but does not read music. Do you guys have any songs in tablature? I play bass.
Mark o’connor version
Mark O’Connor does a fun version of this tune and Green Groves of Erin with Yo-Yo Ma on the Appalacian Waltz CD. Unusual session they had with some very intersesting harmonies.
Same in E

this is not the traditional tonality but it works just fine.
You could try it on a G whistle…

Slight alterations to fit on GHB, based loosely on Slainte Mhath’s recording (from memory, there are no doubt differences!)
