This lovely tune is on London Lasses and Pete Quinn’s “Track across the Deep” CD. According to the notes, it was penned by Donegal fiddle master Danny Meehan, who has been based in London. It was followed by Kitty Sean Cunningham’s: https://thesession.org/tunes/9048

Well, I’m not very sure if it’s really a barndance simply because it’s not double. A fling? Hope “ceolachan” will enlighten me soon.
