Learnt off Mary Custy’s fiddle playing. The sleeve notes of the recording don’t provide any info on the tune. Does anybody have the name for it?

I remember hearing the late Alfie Mulholland playing this tune or one similar to it on tin whistle when he was living in London in 1963, & the name he had for it was The Whistling Postman.
