Wild Geese?

There is a fairly well known air - The Wild Geese which is a completely different tune to this. Looking at most of the recordings listed, I suspect they have the air and not this??

Ed Reavy composed this tune, and this transcription matches the one in the Reavy Non-Profit Foundation collection.

Is the original air posted anywhere? This tune has been in my tune book for so long, yet just looking at it now I see it’s not the one I was looking for…
