This sounds like the hornpipe Back of the Haggard, under a different name?
in D as I play it, dressings and funny-stuff omitted for clarity.

*come to think of it* all of the above is this tune right here
where’d you get this version from, synaesthete? I like it.
And here https://thesession.org/tunes/3129
Actually I think O’Beirne’s is quite a bit different. Definitely worth a separate entry.
I agree, it’s a different tune. Is this tune any relation to Ed Reavy’s Lad O’Beirne’s hornpipe?
I got this tune from my fiddle teacher Jode Dowling. He didn’t know the name, but Paddy O’Brien says that it is called O’Beirne’s Hornpipe and also the Lietrim Fancy.
Setting X:3 above is from Mick Moloney’s LP ‘Strings Attached (1980), where he calls it "Tom of the Hill".
Michael Coleman played this after Byrne’s on a 78, the blanket title was Tommy Hill’s Favorite, Mick must have gotten the title distorted a bit there. I’ll be taking a banjo class from him on Saturday as it happens. TH’s Favourite is here already: https://thesession.org/tunes/7404 Along with the different versions of this "other" tune linked here, typical mustard board tune variants sprouting up like radioactive crabgrass…
Tom of the Hill
That’s interesting, Kevin - thanks for that. I see blarneystar said pretty much the same thing 3 years ago. Let’s now gather all the versions on the other page and delete this one. Um… Em… Mmm.
