Irish, Reel. A Dorian (‘A’ part) & G Major (‘B’ part). Standard. AB (Breathnach/CRE II): AA’BB’ (Breathnach/Man & his Music). The title probably refers to a County Leitrim born flute player named Hugh Travers who was a member for a time of the Dublin Metropolitan Garda Ceili Band, along with whom he recorded some 78 RPM sides in the 1930s (Philippe Varlet). There is a jig version of the tune derived from the reel. Sources for notated versions: flute player Matt Molloy (Ireland) [Breathnach]; piper Liam Ó Floinn (Kildare) [Breathnach/Man & his Music]. Breathnach (CRÉ III), 1985; No. 99, pg. 51. Breathnach (The Man & his Music), 1996; No. 3, pg. 102. Mulligan Records LUN 004, "Matt Molloy" (1976).

Triplicated

This is a dead common tune and is in the database twice already https://thesession.org/tunes/1518 and find link to the other one in the comments. PS what is going on with the key? Surprised that this has been allowed to slip through the net.

It is worth noting Hughie Travers’ works quite nicely as a jig (see A Touch of Clare by Kitty Hayes for example)
