FIVE POUND JIG, THE. AKA - "Dia Luain 's Dia Máirt (Monday and Tuesday)." Irish, Jig. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune is a member of the large "Gold Ring (1) (The)" family of tunes. The earliest appearance of the tune in print is in Church of Ireland cleric James Goodman's mid-19th century music manuscripts. 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 manuscripts and printed collections.
