The One After It
This has been a favorite jig of mine that I have heard played locally for eons by flute player Vinnie Cronin. It was elusive to find out the name of the tune because Vinnie never seemed to know which one I was referring to when asked. Eventually he knew which tune I was taking about and said he called it "Monks Of The Screw." I tried putting a query to Itrad years ago and all that resulted was a recording by that title. My friend John Sherry had it and made me a copy (great recording BTW) and I’m happy to say I finally have the tune.
Posted here is the transcription from that recording.
Or what I meant was there was a band by that name. The title of the recording is Brathar Na NÓl.
I believe this is the jig Liz Carrol and Tommy Maguire recorded as Paddy Kelly’s. Their version is a little different, though.
The first part is similar to Ahearne’s Egg https://thesession.org/tunes/4440

Learnt this version from Clare Egan at the Willie Clancy down in Milltown Malby last year as ‘Eddie Kelly’s’ . I quickly realised this wasn’t the name the tune was commonly known by so I’ve been searching for another name for it since - thank you! I fell in love with this tune as soon as I heard it. This version is similar to the version Liz Carroll and Tommy Maguire recorded as ‘Paddy Kelly’s’.
I have since come to understand this is an Eddy Kelly composition. I’ve been calling it "Eddie Kelly’s" ever since.

July 24, 2016. I was taught this version #3 as "Paddy Kelly’s Jig" yesterday at a tune workshop in Bristol. Lovely tune, well worth learning but probably not the easiest to absorb by ear in one sitting!
Re: The One After It
Yes, you’re right, fidicen, and I’ve been calling it "Paddy Kelly’s Jig" now too. It was composed by Paddy Kelly.
