Tom Connor’s (jig)

A simple, little jig from Eoghan O’Sullivan and Gerry Harrington’s box and fiddle duet playing. A bit of research shows Tom Connor was a Cork fiddler who passed on some local Sliabh Luachra tunes to Denis Murphy. There’s also a hornpipe associated with T. Connor, which appears on the first album of Teada.

Thanks for this one, slainte. I first heard this in a session in Sydney, played by some fiddlers who said they got it off the Sliabh Notes album. I had to add it in the other names section because of a problem with the apostrophe in "Connor’s". This now links to that album.

I beg your pardon, it wasn’t because of the apostrophe. I just noticed that the name I cut & pasted has the O’ in front of it.
