The Homecoming Jig

I learned this simple pleasant jig from Mary Custy’s fiddle playing. I expected I could find some info on it on this site, but couldn’t find the tune itself. Has anybody heard it played?

nice slainte…………. is mary custy related to tola custy by any chance?

Yeah, they are both Frank Custy’s children. Their sister Cathy is also a musician and plays concertina.

Composer

It seems this little jig was composed by Eoin O’Neill.

slainte is correct. I heard this straight from the horses’s mouth, as it were.
