I've just learned this jig as a gan ainm and transcribed it to abc.

When I searched for a match I came up with a tune called "When the Cock
Crows It Is Day" which someone had posted to the list in the past. They
are definately the same tune.
T:When the Cock Crows It Is Day
Z:From Tommy Keane & Jacqueline McCarthy, "The Wind Among the Reeds"

But I also found a few versions of another tune, a slide, also called by
the same title. Here's Henrik's version.
T:When the Cock Crows it is Day
T:Ta an coileach ag fogairt an lae

I suspect the title of my tune is not "When the Cock Crows It Is Day"
and that the tune posted to the list was in error. There is a slight
resemblance in the way the tunes begin. Can anyone shed some light on
