Peter Tuohey’s (jig)

Learnt from Marcas O’Murchu’s flute playing. It seems he learnt it from his grandmother’s neighbour Barney Conlon, who recorded music with John McKenna in New York in the 1920s. According to the notes, the jig appears as “Nancy Hynes’s” in O’Neill’s.

It obviously has echos of some well-known tunes like “Banish Misfortune” and “the Cook in the Kitchen.”

A somewhat different version of this tune appears on Mike Rafferty and Willie Kelly’s duet album “The New Broom.”

Mike writes: The second one I do not have any history of, so I put the name Cregg on it. Ballinakill, where I’m from, long before my time, was once referred to as Cregg.
