Unknown name

I picked this tune up in northern ireland last year. I’ve come across three people in england that know it but none know what it is called. It’s become quite a regular and I keep being asked what it’s called. Does anyone know?

As a variation, I sometimes play the last two bars on the fiddle as an A chord on the a and e strings, either with triplets or just 6 strait quavers. I think this is how the people I came across in Northern Ireland played it.

Or I should say "as I learned it" which could equally be inaccurate I am quite sure.

Not McGoldrick’s

It’s not McGoldrick’s, No Cause

I don’t know the name of the one that’s posted, but I’m familiar with it, as a fiddler plays it at our local sessions.

At one of those sessions, one of the (lady!) punters refers to him as "her brilliant fiddler" and absolutely drools over him when he plays it … 🙂

It is mightily familiar to it though - even the change to the second part.

Ach well - fair enough

Re: Gan Ainm

A morph of McGoldrick’s jig, then… I’m listening to it in a medley and yeah, the second setting of McGoldrick’s has the necessary components. Thanks, Alistair!
