Noel Hill’s (2) by De Dannan

From "De Dannan: Hibernian rhapsody" album, track 1, there are 3 reels named "Noel Hill’s" (reels), this is the 2nd one:
1. = Mary McMahon’s
2. this Noel Hill’s
3. another Noel Hill’s

This has become popular at my local session, introduced by session.org member ciansdad. I learnt the following version off him (thanks ciansdad)
