This tune is an adaption of the melody in Splinter McCloud's Jig,
a tune learnt from Scottish piper and drummer 'Splinter' McLeod,
at Noorat sometime in the 1920s.  The original is undiscovered as
yet but John Meredith records that Splinter McCloud's forebears
came from the Hebrides and they may have brought it with them.
