This tune has been going round my head almost incessantly for the last couple of weeks.
Mike - Your version differs a little bit from mine. What’s your source?
Here’s the version in my head:

…and, for those in doubt, it’s *not* a reel.
…clearly not a reel…
but what the heck IS it?
It’s a Carolan tune, isn’t it? I’m surprised no one else here has identified it as such. A quick internet search should comfirm it, though; just a second… yep! It’s an O’Carolan tune.
Pipe friendly version.
So many good tunes written and played by O’Carolan.
Re: Morgan Magan
This may be a more generic question, but I did notice when I looked at this second setting and downloaded it into "Notion" software and printed out the sheet music as well that there were substantial differences in the two versions. Then I went back into Notion and printed from there, that that sheet music did match the download. Is this a glitch with my software or have others found similar discrepancies? As a mature person trying to play this music, the site is providing great resouces, but problems like this are frustrating.
