Kitty Hayes’ Hornpipe

I learned Kitty Hayes’ Hornpipe from the great album “Rooska Hill” by Tony O’Connell and Éamonn O’Riordan. Kitty Hayes recorded this tune herself as Junior Crehan’s. I couldn’t find this hornpipe in the book of Junior Crehan’s compositions published by his daughters Angela and Ita, However there is a reel called Crehan’s Banbhs in the book which shares a lot of similarities with this tune.
