BALTYORAN (Baaltigh Abhran). Irish, Slip Jig. C Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. "This is so different from the tune of the same name in Bunting ("Baltighoran") that it can hardly be regarded as a version: it is rather a different melody" (Joyce). There are rhythmic similarities between the phrases of the two as well as some melodic echoings, and O'Sullivan (1983) believes this to be a variant of Bunting's tune; but this is stretching I think.
