A lovely Doneagl Jig.

Or D

Pardon me, I’m not great at reading music - what’s that squiggly thing between the 8th notes - in the 5th measure of the B part?

It’s a quaver rest.

It’s a breath…of the late Frankie.

Truly a most fitting tribute to have a breath of Frankie immortalized here.

Compare the D Major A-parts, "Con Cassidy’s Jig" clearly an influence…

Con Cassidy’s, X:5

From Turlach Boylan’s nice album "The Tidy Cottage". This came up in a session recently and several of us knew it but we couldn’t remember what it was called.

Re: Con Cassidy’s

Fiddlers: how do you manage those string crossings from E string to D string at the start of the B-part? Very difficult to play them cleanly at speed without sounding the A string. Which part of the bow do you use?
