The Silvermore slip jig

I found this in O’Neill’s Music of Ireland (#1141). Sounds quite similar to The Humours of Whiskey https://thesession.org/tunes/46
with the parts reversed.

Another title

As with so many of the tune settings in her book "A Drop in the Ocean", Josephine Keegan has her own title for the tune. She lists this one as her slip jig #4 under the title Burke’s Jig.
