Not a tune you hear much, unfortunately. I learned it years ago from a recording by the Galway band "Shaskeen".

Thanks, Kenny. This is one of the two hornpipes I’ve been struggling to learn from Sean Moloney’s recording. According to the notes, it was recorded by the Ballinakill Traditional Players, from East Galway.

one of my favourite tunes right now
