It seems no jig named “Dairy Maid” has ever been posted.
Here is a first one, which appears in O’Neill’s Music of Ireland: 1850 Melodies (1903), p. 207, no. 1100.
This setting also appears – in a very similar version, also in F major – in The Petrie Collection of Irish Music, part II, ed. Charles Villiers Stanford (1905), p. 150, no. 596 as “The Dairy Girl”.
