And not to demean the thread, but Johnny's So Long At the Fair is the melody (or variant thereof) of the Seven Old Ladies.

This sort of thing goes on a lot e.g. Fáinne Geal an Lae = the Dawning of the Day = Raglan Road.
Up the tempo a bit and you have William Bloat.

The jig Donnybrook Fair slowed down to an air gives us Easy and Slow.

Anyway, great song Jim!
