There are several tunes named after Eddie Moloney of East Galway, and they are all old and rare. This one comes from Maeve Donnelly and Peadar O’Loughlin’s duet album. It might be related to The Boys of Coomanore: https://thesession.org/tunes/863
Also on Catherine McEvoy’s latest solo album. In the sleeve notes, she writes she can’t recall where she learnt it, but informs that it appears on Seamus Connolly’s tunebook "Forget Me Not."
This is the same tune (with parts reversed) as the tune posted as Seamus Devaney’s jig (tune #3355).
This is a transcription from Eddie Moloney, from the first of the double CD "Eddie Moloney Master Musician" https://thesession.org/recordings/5050
It’s called Tommy Whelan’s Jig #2, there. Of interest is that it sounds like he’s playing Cnat throughout. He also puts a few notes up the octave, which is a nice touch. I tried to put in some of the breathing spots, but he does change these through the track.
