This is different from both of the tunes with the same name already posted.
Learnt from the album Across the Fence by the Bass family from Wexford, which I will post as soon as I have the track list.

Variation

B part, bars 3 and 4 (similar to the Harvest Home)

Thanks so much for this beautiful music. Just what I so badly needed on yet another Sunday in Lockdown in dear old London Town.
