The jiggy bit at the end of some O’Carolan tunes
Why are they there?
Could it be that some collector made use of the paper to write down another tune, as still happens - with me anyway? Or is there some musical reason?
And though they are described as jigs. they are not entirely compatible with the vast canon of traditional, aon-dó-trí jigs to which generations have hopped and lepped.
And finally, what class of a sin would it be to omit them?
