DUNREAVY PARK. AKA and see "Here's Good Health to the Piper," "Piper's Fancy (2)," "Piper's Maggot (The)," "Piper's Whim (1)," "Twopenny Postman's Jig." Irish, Slip Jig (9/8). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Dunreavy (Dún Réimhe or 'Réimhe's fort') is a place-name in south County Armagh, northern Ireland. The park lies northwest of Mullaghbane. The slip jig was entered as an untitled two-part tune in the 1841 music manuscript collection of Dublin dentist and collector Henry Hudson (1798-1889). Evidence by the several alternate titles, the piece was a favorite piping tune. See note for "annotation:Piper's Whim (1)" for more.
