Trip To London #2

I thought this would have been here already, but did a "search" on the name and key phrases, and it doesn’t seem to be.
This is the 2nd of 2 compositions by Maurice Lennon and Kieran Hanrahan when they were members of "Stockton’s Wing". This was prompted by a discussion asking for the tune to be identified. A link was provided to a Comhaltas video of concertina-player Ernestine Healy playing it, although her 2nd part is significantly different from the original I’ve posted here.
The transcription is not my own, but was given to me several years ago by that walking encyclopedia of traditional music Nigel Jelks, from Kirriemuir.

Famous Baravan should tickle your fancy. Or Rory Gallagher
