A lovely easy to learn jig that I got from Kevin Crawford and recently recorded by the Raw Bar Collective.
Triplets can be of course played in the first part for the efg sequences.
A close relative to "(All Around) The Holly Tree":
I’m pretty sure the first people to record it were Liam O’Connor and Sean McKeon on "Dublin Made Me". It’s amazing how fast it has spread.
It’s from the Canon James Goodman collection, and it’s possible it’s also related to the Maid on the Green.
