BALTIGHORAN JIG. AKA - "Baltyoran." Irish, Slip Jig (9/8 time). D Major. Standard tuning. AABB (Kerr): AABBCCDD (Kennedy, O'Farrell). Not Joyce's "Baltyoran" but essentially the same as "Baltiorum" in O'Neill and Bunting. Kennedy's version appears to be identical to O'Farrell's, and was probably his source.
