This has crossed over into Celtic fingerstyle with a tip of the hat to driving Scruggs, especially for the Em sections in the second part, where the fiddle cuts, in Sligo versions involving a triplet (on notes B, E, E), then D to E, are clearly implied. I find the first part more Irish-Celtic and second part my bluegrass-Celtic. This is a famous tune because it was often played at the crossroads by fiddlers for young dancers who would meet at night, away from their parents - Saturday night entertainment. ;-)
