An old Jig but a lovely jig that goes well on the pipes. A version can be found in O’Neils

Thanks, JACKB for putting this one here. I’m always on the look out for good 48 bar jigs and this is a good one for putting into a set for dancing to.

There are even a few dances that fit 48 bars perfectly, and the other way around, and even Irish… ;-)

Here is the way I play this good tune for some 20 years. I don’t remember from whom I learned it. The first part seems to be related to Jackson’s Trip To Aughrim (https://thesession.org/tunes/5118#setting5118).

This two-part setting is nearly identical to the Kerr’s version of "The Donnybrook Boy." Chords are from
Rochester NY accordion player Rick Muir’s setting.
