I found this tune marked "Not Named" in a music book I have. I did a little bit of investigation and discovered that it is a slip jig cerca 1920. Nevertheless, it is possible one of the easiest tunes I have ever learned.
This looks like a slightly different version of "The Whinny Hills of Leitrim," which I believe is a slightly older tune. "The Barony" may be an updated version of it.

Sorry, specifics I’d forgotten for the previous transcription…
akin to The Whinney Hills of Leitrim alright:
I found the A part of this tune on the Online Academy of Irish Music’s website (OAIM). It was called "The Fisherman Slip Jig" and apparently sometimes called "The Black-Haired Lass." The A part is the same as the first setting here. The B part is different. Matt Molloy does a version on Heathery Breeze called "Fisherman’s Lilt," where you can hear a version of the B part.
