The Primrose Road (reel)
Another tune from Cathal McConnell’s first recording. He cites a Fermanagh fiddler called Edward Curran as the source. I suspect it’s a cousin of The Primrose Lass.
I suppose these two tunes are more sister and brother than cousins. In fact I believe this is only a different version of the Primrose Lasses.
Yes, but certainly not an identical twin of the Primrose Lass.
By the way, Edward Curran would be an uncle of famed Altan citternist Ciaran.

Slainte, this is the same tune as on your Cian album https://thesession.org/tunes/2804.
This is just the Old Torn Petticoat, but with B2 instead of c2 for the opening note.
