It definitely sounds like a version of "The Connachtman´s Rambles" to
me too. BTW, I had a look at Caoimhin's online Donegal fiddle tutor,
where this jig is featured. There he has the name "Bean ag Baint
Duileasc" for this jig. Now I wonder what "Duileasc" is. My
Irish-English dictionary translates it as "dulse", which is not in
any of my English dictionaries. I have a vague idea that I've heard
the word, and that it's some kind of seaweed. Is this correct?

It's "Spindle Shanks", which also appears on De Danann's "Song for
Ireland", in the set "Mulqueen's Reels". It also appears on Conal
O'Grada's "Top of Coom" album, played in G.
