Sean Healy’s Hornpipe

Essentially a D-Maj tune, with modulation into D-Mix (just for the second bar of the "B" part) , which adds character and interest.

Dillane’s

Notated from Martin Mulvihill’s 1978 LP ‘Traditional Irish Fiddling from County Limerick’. Martin "learned it from the fiddle playing of Tom Dillane".

Re: Dillane’s

This tune is essentially the same as Sean Healy’s (https://thesession.org/tunes/9443). 2nd bar of the turn has B’s where the other version has C’s. Otherwise very similar.
