JC's ABC Tune Finder has "Within a mile of Dublin" in various formats, but not banjo tab. Maybe you can find something that will convert one of their formats to banjo tab.

The Tune Finder didn't have "Katie."

Both tunes are in O'Neill's 1001 Gems, The Dance Music of Ireland.

Kitty Come Down From Limerick is under the title ' Will You Come Down To Limerick '

Here's an excerpt from O'Neill's 1001 and East Clare: A Curious Connection, by Gerard Foley:
    In 1903 Captain Francis O'Neill published O'Neill's Music of Ireland. This was a collection comprising 1850 Airs, Jigs, Reels, Hornpipes etc. It met with success and, arising from this, he perceived a popular appetite for a compilation specifically dedicated to the dance music of Ireland. Many of the tunes in the new collection would be drawn from his previous effort but in 1906 he travelled to Ireland in search of further material for this project. He found little music to excite him until he heard a handful of tunes near Feakle in East Clare. In 1907 he published The Dance Music of Ireland, O'Neill's 1001. This book, over time, became an important printed source of new tunes for traditional musicians all over Ireland. The conundrum is that several tunes now identified as part of the East Clare repertoire are drawn almost directly from this collection.

I followed Google leads to two copies of The Dance Music of Ireland, O'Neill's 1001 in Google Books, but neither was available for viewing. But persistence paid - click here.

Both O'Neill's books have been reprinted by various publishers and are available for a very reasonable price (under $25 a copy) - but they don't have banjo tab (do they have banjo tab for fiddle session tunes?). I know that Mel Bay publishes at least one of the books and Walton's the other.

I missed the bit about banjo tab Joe, I play mandolin and tenor banjo, is it me ? I find standard notation easier to read than tablature, it's simple enough as regards melodies and dance tunes and it applies to most instruments.

O'Neill's Music of Ireland is on-line as ABC, Noteworthy and MIDI files as well as staff notation at the Old Music Project, among other places.

Notations for both tunes should be easy to find on the web, via the tune database, JC's tune finder, the Reverend's ABC tune search etc etc

Banjo tab, not likely although there is a guitar tab site out there that has them so who knows. They're simple tunes though and easily picked up by ear.

Barney McKenna recorded both these tunes with The Dubliners, brilliant.
