Another Tom Billy’s?
I heard this from a De Dannan tape years back. The combined this winner with Ryan’s Jig. I wouldn’t say that it’s for begginers but it is none the less a great piece to learn.
I enjoy nice quiet rolls in the A part then a regular voice to the remaining notes. No need to rush this one. The tune will get lost with real quick if ya don’t take some time.
This is NOT the same tune that is on the Molloy/Brady/Peoples album.
Hurray for youtube

I thought "Tom Billy’s" on Water from the well from the Chieftains is a reel, not a jig.
So how come that opening https://thesession.org/tunes/816 and clickin on Water from the well and then on Tom Billy’s, I get to see a jig?
Where can I find the reel Tom Billy’s?

It makes me dizzy to think these two are dizygotic twins!
New Favorite Tune.
This tune just might replace "Out on the Ocean" as my favorite tune. But I have to learn how to play it to see.
Aoife Ní Bhroin plays this tune splendidly.
C sharp roll
This tune is a good opportunity to practice your c sharp roll, fluterers!
I suggest using your tongue lightly for the first cut and tap the ‘b’ finger just as lightly for the second cut.
to go with the fact that my comment above was my first ever contribution to this site!

This jig appears as Tom Billy’s No. 2 in the second lot of John B Walsh tunes from the ceolas listings.
Re: Tom Billy’s
There’s a wonderfully fluent version of this tune by Mary Bergin (whistle) where she plays it with The Langstrom Pony.
Tom Billy’s, X:7
A stripped down (non-ornamented) version of how Denis Murphy and Julia Clifford play it on Star Above The Garter. A couple melody notes in this version are different from any others I saw in other settings.
