“Highway to Kilkenny”

Ah, dear Kilkenny, I’d love to be on my way there right now… This lovely little slip jig is related to some others, but my brain isn’t working well right now. Also, it just seemed sad that this has been here without some comment, so now it has my fried musings… What are the relatives? :-/

“The Rakes of Kilkenny”

Can’t say that I’ve ever been to Kilkenny, but came across this relative:
