this is a cousin of “apples in winter” and it’s a nice one!

Where’d you get it? Which Joe Kennedy?

I found it in Ryan’s Mammoth Collection, by Patrick Sky (1995).

Re: Joe Kennedy’s

I found it note for note in P W Joyce’s ‘Ancient Irish Music’ (held in Sheffield University library). Joyce calls it Kennedy’s Jig and writes, ‘Taken down in 1847, from the whistling of William Sheedy, of Fanningstown, in the county Limerick.’
