What’s this called? I love it!

Google says…. it’s already here

I just cut and pasted the last two bars of the tune into Google and this is the output for the first hit:

Octogreg is right - this is The Donegal Lass composed by Brian Finnegan and recorded on his solo CD, When the Party’s Over.

bother. just couldn’t find it because it was posted as being in Dmajor, rather than Amixolydian, and i wasn’t prepared to trawl through 150 or so tunes with the same ABC phrases

On "When the Party’s Over", Brian does so much ornamentation and cool stuff with this tune that it’s hard to extract the straight tune by itself. I see this version has a lot of the cool fancyness done by Brian, whereas the other version is pretty much the basic tune.
