John Egan’s Polka
Here’s the third and last tune published in the autumn 2002 edition of Treoir, identified as John Egan’s. This one is a polka, but a different tune from the Egan’s polka that’s already in the database.
Some information about the author can be found under this reel, in the comments section:
This tune is not the "John Egan’s" that appears in the Moneymusk album. That one is a hornpipe.

arpadoro, that’s a different tune, and is usually called Roosky Polka. Here’s a G major version: https://thesession.org/tunes/5301
The 1st part is a take on Little Brown Jug https://thesession.org/tunes/1242
The 2nd part is redolent of various Ulster and Munster polkas.
