Gweedore Brae (sheet music?)

August 24, 2017, 3:17 PM · Hi everyone! I have been looking for ages for the sheet music of this beautiful Irish piece arranged by Heifetz. It's called Gweedore Brae. Apparently there is one library in the US, and the interlibrary loan would be $60 they say... So I am wondering whether anyone has this scanned or something... and would be willing to help a guy out and share.
Thank you so much!
Best,
Paul

Irish tunes commonly each have several different names, so my search for the original tune found this link: https://thesession.org/tunes/5936. On this link there are three different versions, the sheet music of which can be easily copied and pasted. It's fairly obvious that the Heifetz version is a major elaboration of the original, which is to be expected. However, it is open to anyone to take a lovely traditional tune such as this, play and enjoy it and then compose their own arrangement.
