Here already

This tune’s named as Harvest Moon and is here already though the setting is obviously a bit different.
The usual questions arise as to whether this should just be posted as a comment in the other entry or are they different enough to warrant separate entries.
I do suspect that Harvest Moon is the correct name for the tune and when tunes get someone’s name appended it sometimes means nothing more than that that was the source.
On checking the Fiddler’s Companion it appears that this is a tune written by the late Paddy O’Brien (Tipperary).
–“HARVEST MOON, THE [2]. AKA - “Paddy O’Brien’s.” Irish, Reel. A Dorian. Standard. Composed by the late button accordion player Paddy O’Brien. PTI 1041, James and John Kelly - “Irish Traditional Fiddle Music” (appears as second reel of “London Set”). Martin Connolly - “Back in Brooklyn.”
