This is a transcription of the Bradley brothers’ (Liam and Anthony, two very popular feis musicians) version of the tune. Another, found at the ABC Tune Finder, is as follows:

Brother Steve identified the tune for us off of Deanta’s first album, and I note that John Williams has also recorded it.
The Bradley Brothers have this as the third tune in the set on the first track of "100% Irish Dance," and threw in a bunch of synthesizer and drum and clap tracks, and more. It’s a lot of fun to dance to, and though I personally find the accompaniment a bit much, the playing of the box and banjo is mighty altogether and the tunes top-notch.
The set is Beare Island/an as of yet unidentified tune/Seany Dorris/one A & one B of the unidentified reel to end. I placed the ABC for the Bradley Bros. version of Beare Island in the comments for that tune.
The second tune in the set…
is, as identified by Brother Steve, hooray hooray, the Humors of Westport, with the B part coming first.
Minor to Maj passage a bit corny?
The 2nd part sounds too similar to the 1st part to really lift the tune anyhow.
Origins of this tune?
Anyone know the provenance of this one?
Re: Seany Dorris
At last! I’ve found this tune!
