I hard this on a De Danaan LP but cant remember which one. For me its got a great swing to it and makes good use of the fiddle’s range.
The DeDannan setting I learned of this tune was done in A maj. And then they go into the Miller of Droghan.
Eleanor Neary was a Chicago piano player, performing and playing sessions from 1930s through the 60s; she passed away in 1993.
Here’s the Amaj abc

The De Dannan CD is Ballroom, the one with Dolores Keane.
And, as the title suggests, probably composed by Eleanor Neary, the Chicago piano player who accompanied Paddy Killoran and many others and who has been called the greatest Irish pianist of her generation!
