Of course you can play it; I do from time to time, though until you started this thread and I looked up the tune, I had no idea what it was called (somebody taught it to me down at the pub one night -I thought it was Scottish!) or who had written it.  The fact that it's in copyright only matters if you decide to record it commercially, in which case you'd need to pay royalties, or if you're playing it professionally in a commercial venue, in which case you might need to specify so that the proper PRS payment (might) go to the writer.  If you're amateur players you don't need to worry about it at all.
