And oh, I just recognised it, it is the Cook in the Kitchen

It isn't. It's Taim in Arrears (or Moll Roe, if you prefer that).

The description says Jim Donoghue's, but I couldn't find a tune under this name that is a match for this melody.

It's a very simple and easy tune. Can't help with a name other than the thought it is a version of a tune that Lucy Farr played that I believe she called Andy Dowy's or Davy's or something like that.


Takes about two minutes to pick up, even without a title though.

It seems to be a tune that Nigel Gatherer has as "Andy Dowy's Reel". And yes, he gives the source as Lucy Farr, as Mr G suggested. Oh, and it's on the session.org as "Andy Davy's". Both of those settings have a slightly different B part, but close enough for it to be the same tune, I reckon.

Yes I know. The reason that I regularly tend to ask for names is not, that I need the sheet music to learn them. I am writing all tunes I learn into my the session.org profile, so that I don't loose the overview and can recap them from time to time. And its always nice to be able to check how much recordings of one and the same tune vary.
And there are many tunes I like that people at my local sessions don't know or at least wouldn't start - therefore I need to do this "bookkeeping" to increase my repertoire. Especially during this times.
And thanks for the help - again :D

It's listed on 'Heart and Home' as Andy Davy's. Track 17. I had a memory of it last night and did check the names onl;ine before posting.

I thought, the questions are the same but the responses are different, or vice versa. But basically just a different take on the same material.

Tunes like this show you can make nice music with not a lot to go on but they emphasise the need for lift, rhythm, clear phrasing and variation to keep away the boredom. If lacking any of it, you haven't much left.

It's a good idea to keep record of tunes, I tend to forget I learned tunes and when I do they disappear. So I write them down, pencil in a little black Moleskine book, I find that serves me better than having computer based collections of stuff. Jotted down these two, just in case.
