NINE PINT COGGIE [3], THE. Irish, Reel. Ireland, County Donegal. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. The tune is similar to, and probably a version of, Scottish fiddler-composer wikipedia:James_Scott_Skinner's "Davie Work." Nigel Gatherer points out the first part is actually closer to James Fraser's "Mill Burn (1) (The)," although as a whole (and especially in the second strain) it seems derivative of Skinner's tune. Ted Hastings suggests that source Doherty, a fan of Skinner's, may have confused the tunes and titles of "Davie Work" and "Nine Pint Coggie."
