I suspect it was the second part of the answer Brendy was waiting for.

E would be a quite unusual key for an Irish tune, especially around East Galway, I'd say, where you're more likely to get tunes in flat keys like B or C. But if anyone has a definitive recording of the first time it was played, we'll all agree that that was the original key and, I suspect, continue to play it in D.
