Source for notated version: New Jersey flute player Mike Rafferty [Harker]. Rafferty was born in Ballinakill, east Co. Galway, in 1926, and emigrated to the United States in 1949. He was taught the wooden flute by his father, who was nicknamed Barrel because people thought he could fill a barrel with wind, and he was a mainstay of the east coast Irish music scene until his death in Sept., 2011.
