Thanks for that. I don't think I've seen the Joyce version - although part of the quotation DOES sound familiar. The only other reference I'm aware of is a tune noted in Journal Of Irish folksong Vol. 3 p.16 as collected by C Milligan Fox in 1904 from T.Sweeny at Mount Charles, Donegal. Its included n a "sheaf of dance tunes".

Regards

p.s. I love the broadsheet where it appears alongside "The Kerry Recruit"!
