The key is D, not G

Note that the key is really D major. Two sharps, and resolving on D.

Jerry Houlihan’s…

… as in O’Neill’s Music Of Ireland (X:3). Also a lengthy six part variant, but with quite a few differences to the one posted by DuncanCameron.

(What, O’Neill’s setting is much different? Surprise!) :)
