ERIN'S GROVES. AKA and see "Castlecomer Lasses (The)," "Down the Groves," "Gay Fellow's Favourite (The)," "Good Fluter (The)," "Green Fields of Erin (1)," "Green Groves of Erin (1) (The)," "Groves of Erin (The)," "Heather Breeze (The)," "Low Highland (The)," "Mary in the Mall," "Miss Shaw's Reel," "Miss Stewart of Grantully (2)," "Padaí Bhillí na Rópaí’s Highland," "Queenstown Lasses (The)." Irish, Reel (cut time). G Major ('A' part) & A Dorian ('B' part). Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. The earliest recorded appearance of the tune is in the mid-19th century manuscripts of Church of Ireland cleric wikipedia:James_Goodman_(musicologist). Goodman (1828-1896) was an uilleann piper, and an Irish speaker who collected locally in County Cork and elsewhere in Munster. He also obtained tunes from manuscript and printed sources. Joyce obtained "Erin's Grove" from the manuscript collection of another Irish music collector, lawyer wikipedia:John_Edward_Pigot (1822–1871), and printed it in Old Irish Folk Music or Songs (1909). It is identical to the "Erin's Groves" in the Goodman manuscripts.
