Something rang loud bells re the A tune of JK's transcription, then the penny dropped: almost identical to first half of "The Rose of Tralee"! However the B tune, or second half is different. However, as we know, many tunes appear on both sides of the Irish Sea, with each claiming them as their own!  Wink

Trish,

Thank you for that, I felt the tune was familiar but thought it was because  Ron, one of our members,had played it to us.  The Rose of Tralee was one of my wife's grans party songs and we often listened to her singing it. 

cheers
