This is a take down of “Skyline Jig” by The Chieftains from their album “Bells of Dublin.” My son wanted to learn it, so I wrote it out for him. I cannot find it ascribed to any other composers or traditions, so I am ascribing it to The Chieftains. If any of you have other information about it, please share!

Re: Skyline

The liner notes of Bells of Dublin seem to indicate that Paddy Maloney composed this tune.
