BARON'S COURT DANCE. Irish, Jig (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody is contained in vol. 2 (p. 159) of the large mid-19th century music manuscript collection of County Cork cleric and uilleann piper James Goodman (musicologist). Goodman researchers Hugh and Lisa Shields record that Goodman obtained the tune from music manuscripts provided by Dublin bookseller John O'Daly. They also find cognate melodies in an untitled jig in Breathach & Small's Ceol Rince na hEirreann 5 (1999, No. 69) and in Browne's Country Dances. The untitled tune in Ceol Rince na hÉireann vol. V (1999) was from the music manuscript collection mostly of the Pigott family in east Kerry at the beginning of the 20th century, made available to Breathnach by Con O'Flynn, Castleisland.
