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.

haha… what a coincidence…. i am only after learning this tune about two days ago…
The first Jig is
crackin tune. I find it close to impossible, even boehm flute!
Try some jigs from that famous, erm, Irish, piper Gordon Duncan
Famous Baravan should tickle your fancy. Or Rory Gallagher
woops, I meant to add that to the thread by the guy looking for "odd" jigs
The Trip To London, X:2
This is the setting that pertains most to the version that appears on Luckpenny by T McElvogue and K Tweed which is in the recordings section and is linked (above)
This is in Gmaj
The Trip To London, X:3
I think the changes I’ve made in bar 1, 3 & 5 are a better representation of this recording by the tune’s composers.
Re: The Trip To London
For the record…The first tune is called The Four Six jig written by Kieran the second The Trip to London was written by myself.,
