I found this three part jig on session recording from Milltown 1986, a tape I hadn´t heard for years. I was thinking there might be something unusual hidden there somewhere and this one turned up. The player at the session (Cleary´s) was a box player from Waterford as far as I remember.

This jig was composed by Paddy O’Brien shortly after the Ormond Street Ceili Band secured its second All-Ireland title at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann (Source ~ The Definitive Collection of the Music of Paddy O’Brien)

Great tune, found it here on this great file of a session in Gortahork, C. Donegal in 1984 featuring players such as Dermot Byrne, Mairead Ni Mhaoinaigh, Frankie Kennedy, Ciaran Curran & others. It is about 39m 30s in:
