Danu calls this slide "Jazzing With Mag Leary". It’s the fourth tune in the last set of their recording "The Road Less Travelled".

…and what I would like to sincerely know is, who is Mag Leary and what exactly IS Danu doing with her? Very suspicious, I say.

Another take

This tune also appears as a jig in Bulmer & Sharpley’s "Music from Ireland" (1974) under the title Paddy Glackin’s.

Oops, that’s in Book 4, tune #49.

A slide is a single jig. Notating them in 12/8 is a relatively new phenomenon, though it better defines those classic long 2-bar (in 6/8) phrases that make it slide…
