Anyone know it ?

Harry Bradley played this hornpipe to a class at Hammy Hamilton’s Flute Gathering in Ballyvourney in 2005, and the mini-disc recorder was running. Only came back to it the other day. I’ve posted a basic version. Harry was throwing in triplets all over the place, because it’s one of those tunes where they’re almost obligatory. A more "extreme" version might be s follows :
