101. The Dublin Jig - H.C. Horner, 80th year, fife, Monesseu (?-Pennsylvania), August 18th, 1960
Played on a G fife, starting it up in G and then jumping up to C. I’ve transposed it to D. I haven’t yet been able to trace any provenance for it and am adding it here to see if anyone can add anything more on this curious jig. While he repeats the last part, it’s unclear what’s intended for the previous parts. I’ve gone ahead with three parts and repeats all round.
I’d meant to say ~ “I’ve transposed it to G”… I’d also written it out in D but that’s not the version given here…
SW PA - “Dublin Jig” >> Eire - “Chalk Sunday”
Found this in ‘The Fiddler’s Companion’:

Re: The Dublin Jig or Double Jig
This looks like Chalk Sunday https://thesession.org/tunes/9081 with a third part added. To my ears the player is saying Double Jig rather than Dublin Jig but I may well be wrong! Incidentally there would appear to be a lot of Dublin Reels linked to this setting!
