Tom Tully’s Hornpipe

This has turned up at our sess recently - hopefully as I’ve transcribed it. Played slowish with not too much swing (but called a hornpipe - I’m not convinced that it sounds very hornpipey!). I’m told that it’s also played much faster (in Yorkshire )

It’s in O’Neills as a set dance in 2/4 - but pretty much the same tune. "O’Neill’s Irish Music, 1915; No. 400, pg. 192."
