This is a Fahey Jig that Dave Flynn tittles Paddy Fahey’s No. 14 on his album "Contemporary Traditional Irish Guitar". I took several liberties with Octave transposition because Dave’s version is too wide for most instruments, even fiddle because he plays a bunch of low Ds. Sorry it’s a little odd but I’ll post a version that I think Paddy probably played it in with low Gs. My guess is that this is a tune that post dates the Holohan dissertation and it is the only recording of the tune that I could find. I do believe it is a genuine Fahey because I trust Dave Flynn and it looks and feels like a Fahey tune.

This is Dave Flynn’s version in the more manageable key of G Major.
