This jig is on the album Friar’s Green by Blackie O‘Connell and Cyril O’Donoghue. Second in a set comprising Friar’s Green, London Jig and The Stormy Night, the album notes state that “The London Jig comes from a set of tunes I heard Paddy Keenan play live in the Templegate Hotel, Ennis, around January ’97. I had never witnessed such mastery of an instrument before.”
