I'm learning it for the spring recital in May.  Ohhh I love it.  I can't find it on youtube on a fiddle but here it is on a mandolin.   

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

Cool, if you want to pair it with another hornpipe for a set, I'd suggest "Off to California" which similar enough that one would blend pretty seamlessly into the other - -I  think.  That's one of the coolest parts of celtic music is that they'll be playing along and all of a sudden you notice that they're now playing a different song -- like these guys.

Here's the music if anyone wants it.  It's so much fun.  After just one day of serious practice, I've gotten the a part down pretty well.

Cool!  So, we'll all look forward to the first video of it on the fiddle, by you!

Lol yes it is very common to go from one tune right into the next.  I don't know why this is done so often in Celtic music but I did it naturally before I knew it was a "thing".
