COLLA CITEACH. Scottish, Jig or March (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. "Colla Citeach" was first printed under this title in Islay fiddler-composer Alexander Mackay's Collection of Reels, Strathspeys and Slow Tunes (c. 1822), and was probably derived from a pipe march called “MacAlisdrum's March," also known in Ireland as "O'Donnell's March (3)" and "Sarsfield's Quickstep."
