Martin Mulvihill’s tunebook has a good version of the Prohibition in G which, bumped up a step, is very much like the Michael Coleman/Tom Gannon 78 recording.

So I’ve written out the book version in A with a tweak or two based on the record:

The Prohibition, X:3

In G, as played by Loretta Egan Murphy on Beyond the Watery Lane. Pretty much an exact transposition of the A major version.
