Jig No. 6

This is down as Paddy Fahey’s Jig No. 6 in Maria Holohan’s Thesis. Not one of his best known jigs, didn’t find it in the database here.

Thank you! I have always loved his tunes and it’s a pleasure to find new ones.

Where did you find Maria Holohan’s thesis?

Maria Holohan’s Thesis is in the University of Limerick.

Well, I won’t be going there anytime in the foreseeable future, that’s across the pond for me, so, I’m really glad you are sharing tunes with us.

Just checking… are the parts really not repeated? A lovely tune.

Well never mind re: the above silly question. The repeats are just written out because the second time through each part is a little different.
