I got this tune from Eamonn Cotter’s CD “Trad Music from County Clare”. It’s a tricky hoor for the flute with that 3rd octave. I used to play it quite a bit, but no one else picked it up so the tune has dropped into my passive repertoire. Of course, Eamon does a great job on it – very accurate, nimble-fingered playing. It’s been a while since I learned so it may have undergone some changes, some northern simplification of Eamonn’s complexities. Those who have the CD can check.
This is an incredible tune, Mr. Note, thanks. The A part reminds me of Martin Mulhaire’s #9, a reel, but another favorite of mine. I know I’m not the person you’d hope to hear this from, but I’ll do my damnedest to pick it up on my contertina and play it at you.

This is from the playing of Tara Breen and her classmates taken from an impromptu performance video. Not impossible on the flute if a bit of folding employed and a good opportunity to use the C-C# foot
