The Templehouse Jig

Another Templehouse Jig, learnt from some sheetmusic years ago. The origin might be scottish (?)

Templehouse, Co. Sligo

If the tune is Scottish, it passed through County Sligo long enough to be named after the Temple House, a Georgian "big house" near Ballymote. Michael Coleman recorded it.

Is in the Gunn Book (Fermanagh 1865) as The Templehouse - jig

The Templehouse, X:3

Michael Coleman’s great version, first time through. Second part is different from some other settings of this jig. Note that Alan Ng lists this separately as "Goat in the Green".
