Does anyone know who wrote this tune? Was it written by Kate McNamara?

No. Kate’s liner notes say that she learned it from Mary MacNamara.

I was just listening to Kate MacNamara’s recording of this lovely tune and decided to learn it. I see that there was a question three years ago as to who wrote it. Tunepal found it in a collection of compositions of the late Brendan Tonra.
