“The Upperchurch Polkas No. 2”
I did a search, and then I searched again, several times. I was surprised I didn’t find this on site but I may have missed it.

The Upperchurch, X:3
This version comes from the Greenbriar Slow Session in Boston, where it is commonly played after the other Upperchurch (https://thesession.org/tunes/904). The polkas are a well liked set that I am told hail from Tipperary, and apparently the town was home to a ceili band as well as several session members knew this one from playing with them.
I love them but have some difficulty finding other tunes to play with them — they aren’t quite Sliabh Luachra polkas, nor Sligo, nor marches… I guess some tunes are just meant to be played in duos (cue Danny Ab’s for one…)
Second ending in B part as posted is meant to show final ending when played last in a set.

From the playing of Diarmuid O’Brien.
The Upperchurch, X:5
From the playing of Simon Pfisterer - the Bavarian traveller piper ;-)
