Irish, Air (9/8 time). E Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Joyce categorizes the melody he prints as a "song tune", although it is a more distanced, perhaps ill-formed, variant of the "Fig for a Kiss (1) (A)" family of tunes. Ryan (1883) prints the tune under the title "Night of Fun," and Paul de Grae points out the tunes are in fact a combination of the first strain of "Fig for a Kiss (1) (A)" with the second strain of "Dublin Streets."
