PANSY BLOSSOM [1], THE (Blat an Sailcuaig). AKA and see "Shunter's Hornpipe," “Shunster's Hornpipe,” “St. Elmo Hornpipe,” “Sunshine Hornpipe (The).” Irish, Hornpipe. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The hornpipe was printed by Francis O'Neill as "Pansy Blossom" in his Music of Ireland (1903), however, by the time of his next collection, Dance Music of Ireland (1907), the title was changed to "Sunshine Hornpipe (The)". The latter title is close to the name of the tunes in Ryan's Mammoth Collection (1883), "Shunster's Hornpipe" (Ryan also printed "St. Elmo Hornpipe").
