Very familier

It’s on the tip of my tongue. I just can’t remember where I heard this. I’m think concertina or fiddle music from Clare but still am not sure. And I’m hearing those F’s possibly natural in bars 3 and 4.

Thanks slainte. That’s indeed the tune I had in my head. I don’t know why I mentioned F naturals and clare music because the actual recording of the tune had no F naturals and was played by a Sligo fiddle/flute duet!

Kevin Keegan played it with F naturals there, and called it “Monasterevin Fancy.”
