Additional notes
Source for notated version : - Dublin dentist and collector Henry Hudson, writing in The Dublin Magazine (July, 1842, p. 66), sources the tune:

A gift from our valuable and venerable ally, Paddy Coneely, – "The Hurler's March," – as he himself performs the air on the pipes. As the manly sport of hurling is a favourite rustic game with our youthful peasantry, so is this lively tune a favorite quickstep with those of all ages. If Paddy were at our elbow he would give us some pleasant story about this, as he can about every other tune he plays.

Ask him does he recollect the Clare Island boys singing it with the chorus of "Abu Mo Leanb" on the lovely day when six boys of the Morans were rowing him across to Achill; the time he was on his travels looking for 'Seagan Gaba'?
