I’ve not much information on this Jig, except that the manuscript is dated July, 1733.
The manuscript itself is in a very sorry state, and I’m not sure if I have copied the notation correctly. The information that there is is in Irish, but I am unable to decipher it. The manuscript itself must have been stored in a very damp place at some time, as it is covered with mould, and some of the ink in the notation and information has run.
I hope of you can make some sense of the notes that I have put down, because I am not sure if they are in the right places.
Your feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks…
