This is a good thing, jigs in Dm are not very widespread here. :-)

Good Jig

I also immediately brought my accordion over to the laptop
to learn that jig when I saw Nuala and Liz on youtube.
(I see that in the ABC’s the low note is A, but on the rendered
sheetmusic it looks like a B, on my screen, so watch out for that.)

I had a short workshop with Nuala at the Corofin festival in 2007. The "advanced" class consisted of one 50-year old man
(me) and five teenaged Irish girls!

It’s an A…

Well spotted. It is definitely an A, for those who refuse to learn from the aural source…
