Devine’s Jig

"This 3 part Jig comes from the playing of Joe Derrane, the Boston based Accordion player. Joe’s parents came from Co. Roscommon & the Aran Islands, recorded a brilliant set of 78rpm recordings on the Copley label, in the late 1940’s."

First part is very like ‘Ships in Full Sail’.

I heard this tune on Paul Brock’s great LP - ‘Mo Chairdin’.
