CON CASSIDY'S (JIG) [2]. AKA and see "Crossing the Oily River," "Sit-in Jig." Irish, Jig (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB'. An untitled jig from Teelin, County Donegal, fiddler and storyteller Con Cassidy, named after him by the group Altan due to lack of a formal title. Donegal fiddler Packie Manus Byrne has a version he calls "Crossing the Oily River." The first strain of the tune appears as the first strain of "Sligo Quadrille No. 2", noted as part of a quadrille set in the 1844 music manuscript collection of County Longford musician Thomas M. Kernan.
