This tune apears on Paddy Moloney and Sean Potts’ ‘Tin Whistles’ album, after The Connaught Heifers (if my memory serves me correctly). I have just written this out from memory, having been filtered through my ears and fingers, so it probably differs somewhat from the recording which I learnt it from (I’ve never heard anyone else play it).
AS a variation on the 1st part, bar 7 can be played:
| AFAd BGBd |.
In the 2nd part, bar 16 can be played:
| ~f3d efed | or | fAdf efed | .
This is almost exactly how I play the tune. Learned from a local banjo player, who, for all we know, got it from somebody who got it from the same recording…
