This is related to the reel of the same name. I have a feeling some people refer to this as a single jig, but it’s listed as a slide on Henrik Norbeck’s, and I think it works well played fast. Eileen Ivers plays a cross between this and "Jenny’s Welcome To Charlie" in slow single jig form on one of her albums before launching into a set of reels.

Thanks Dow for resurrecting this great tune which was popular back in the 70s (Paddy Glackin & Jolyon Jackson I think) but is little heard these days - hopefully this posting will change things!

This version here has the same melody, but a strange rythm - Is there a slide version recorded somewhere?
