I believe McElvogue tune is the second one on the track.

Thanks for the additional information. As you say, the tune is already in the database as " The Flowers of Brooklyn".

The third tune is the Reavy’s Highest Hill in Sligo.

The Flowers of Brooklyn was written by Billy McComiskey. It’s on his old Green Linnet solo LP "Makin’ the Rounds", in a different key. I believe Kevin Crawford is responsible for putting this tune into the flute-friendly key of G, on his "d Flute Album".

D’you mean THAT Brooklyn?

Does the title refer to the borough of New York City (the one with the famous bridge named after it)? Just wondering because I’ve lived in that particular Brooklyn since I was tiny.

Yes it does.
