On of those tunes that make me happy.
Great melody - was it ever played as a slide in the Sliabh Luachra style as when I started humming it, it had a slide feel to it? However, the geography would suggest otherwise with Con Cassidy being a Donegal fiddler and also the Altan connection.
Wow, this was one of the first jigs I ever learned, and I forgot how much I liked it! It was also one of the first tunes I ever put it in a set — followed by Irish Washerwoman (i *said* it was when I was a beginner) and Merrily Kiss the Quaker. I remember I was so proud of that set… LOL

Con Cassidy’s, X:3
I transcribed this tune from the Leonard-Kernan MS, c.1844-1850, of Abbeyshrule, Co. Longford. It’s the second tune in a set of quadrilles entitled ‘Sligo Quadrills’.
Re: Con Cassidy’s
@Bannerman: The first part is very similar to the slide "Rain a Sup" https://thesession.org/tunes/3829
