Slow Reel from Diarmaid Moynihan

I learned this lovely tune from the short-lived Red Hat Band’s CD entitled "Covering Ground." Diarmaid Moynihan and Brian Finnegan play it as a duet on C and F whistles.

OK, it’s a different one than I know by that name

I was interested in this one because I am learning a tune called "The Top of the Hill" from the [i]Hidden Fermanagh[/i] book. (Sorry if the preceeding sentence looks funny - I was trying out something.)

But I see this is not a jig, but a reel. The one I am learning is an interesting tune with the A part as a Slip Jig (at least it’s in 9/8/), and the B Part in 12/8.
