I first heard this tune done by Lunasa as a Slow Reel this is not the version they play I found this on JC’s Tune Finder but it is pretty similar.

It’s probably in A dorian. Composed by Paddy O’Brien, isn’t it?

The Lunasa Version

Avery, it’s a fairly close match to what Sean Smyth plays on Kinnity Sessions. Here’s my transcription of the fiddle, first time through.
