CHORUS JIG [6] (Damhsa Loineach). AKA and see "Rocks of Cashel (2) (The)." Irish, Reel (2/4 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCCB'B'. The melody is dissimilar to other tunes with this title and O'Neill (1910) says it is a version of the "Rocks of Cashel (2) (The)," as printed in the early 19th century by uilleann piper O'Farrell. Although the tune is labeled a reel it converts easily into a 6/8 form with only a slight rhythmic alteration (as O'Sullivan {1983} says, "if the rhythm is 'swung' slightly the meter changes to 12/8 time and the piece takes on the movement of a single jig").

Additional notes
Source for notated version : - the Irish collector Edward Bunting noted the tune from "Macdonnell, the piper in 1797."

Printed sources : - Bunting (Ancient Music of Ireland), 1840; No. 103, p. 76. O'Sullivan/Bunting, 1983; No. 103, pp. 149-150.
