The second strain is a member of a wide-spread schottische family. In Ireland the tune was sometimes called a hornpipe, although usually as a barn dance. The melody was popularised by Boys of the Lough flute player Cathal McConnell, who had it from a Derrylin, County Fermanagh, musician named Andy Kerrin.

Recorded sources: Flying Fish FF-058, Cathal McConnell - "On Lough Erne Shore" (1978).
