I don’t know what name has been given to this tune by J. Keegan(maybe none), composer of some great other nearly-warhorses like "the Curlew". This one is quite obscure, always going from low to high and high to low, special but deserving to get some more reputation.

The A roll in the first part should be a low one (for those who prefer sheets to ABC).

Nice tune. I think it’s in B minor.

I like this tune,
it sounds nice on the mandolin.
