I thought the A-part sounded a lot like Roxburgh Castle, but then it diverges.

I just tried googling the above abc and it took me to a webpage with a name for the tune. I’m still none the wiser about the tune really…

Another setting in Amaj

By the way the setting I posted is from Brendan Bulger.

When I did a search for "Bond Store", it turns out Henrik Norbeck has it at his site, albeit in the key of A. This is also from a session recording. I hope HN doesn’t mind me copying it here for convenience:

Deirdre Collis’ = Paddy Gavin’s

I heard this tune played on the radio this morning, played by Billy McComiskey and Liz Carroll. We have been playing it as Paddy Gavin’s. I have it slightly different from their setting. Mine is more flute/concertina friendly. It’s a lovely reel.
