NORRIE LEARY. Irish, Jig. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody appears in Boston-based D/C# button accordion player Jerry O'Brien's 1952 collection. O'Brien (1899–1968) was originally from Kinsale, County Cork, who emigrated in the early 1920's. His protege was Joe Derrane with whom he sometimes recorded.

Joe Derrane & Jerry O'Brien

The jig seems unique to O'Brien's collection.
