I have versions of this in a couple of Irish tune books titled 'An Ghaoth

One of them says this about it:
"The South Wind. Edward Bunting says he got this air in 1792 from an old man
known as Poor Folk who walked the northern counties playing on a tin fiddle.
It is in Bunting's Collection (1809) as 'Oh Southern Breeze'"

Well, googling "South Wind" "traditional tune" brings up a lot of 
sites with Irish, Gaelic, or waltz in the description, so.....

I've always assumed it's Irish. So perhaps your typo in the title 
"SNP" tune wasn't quite what you meant. Flower of Scotland, anyone?  

Hope this helps
