My first attempt at submitting a tune — this one from the Athole Collection, as compiled arranged by James Stewart-Robertson. I think it might be in the Cape Breton tradition as well. It’s in A and if you don’t play it too fast it’s a good one to put some swing into, but speed it up and it works even better.
This tune can be found in the Irish tradition as "The Boys Of Ballinafad" (O’Neill, Dance Music of Ireland No.195) and in Ryan’s Mammoth Collection as "The Pivot Bridge" (page 102).
Charlie Piggott and Gerry Harrington also recorded a different versio of this tune and named it after West Clare flute player Paddy Mullins. It goes like this:
e|:cBA E2A|F2A E2c|efe edc|d2c Bcd|
cBA E2A|F2A E2c|efe ecA|1 BcB A2B:|2 BcB A2c|

It seems to be related to the Rambler: https://thesession.org/tunes/510
Ian Anderson of Jedburgh play it like this on banjo:
