The name of this Manx jig?

Re: The name of this Manx jig?

One of the comments seems to give the title "Three little boats".

Re: The name of this Manx jig?

Right - that’s sorted then - cheers! :)

“Three Eeasteyryn Boghtey” / “Three Little Boats Went Out to Sea”

A tragic song I believe, though I could not find the words ~ and tune, 6/8 & 4/4…

This appears three times in "Kiaull Vannin: A Source Book for Manx Tunes" - transcribed from the collections of Dr. J. Clague and others by Colin W. P. Jerry

Also in: "Kiaull un Theay 1: Manx Music and Songs for Folk Instruments" - Colin Jerry, page 67 - from the Clague collection / J.Cubbon

The three of them went out in one boat.

Thanks Weejie! ;-)

Re: The name of this Manx jig?

Note - Manx "boght" = "poor", as in Irish "bocht", and Gaidhlig "bochd".

Manx for boat = "baatey", nom plural "baatyn".

Three little boats usually translated - "tree (or three) baatyn beggey".
