CASHEL JIG, THE. AKA and see "Lough Gill," "Millpond (The)," "Shores of Lough Gill (The)," "Paddy Carty's." Irish, Jig. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Cashel is an Irish word derived from the Latin castellum, 'little fort', which the Britons had picked up from the Romans and used in Wales in the form of castel. In the late Roman period the Welsh coast was fortified against Irish raiders, who picked up the work in the course of their adventures (Matthews, 1972).
