FIVE POUND JIG, THE. AKA - "Dia Luain 's Dia Máirt (Monday and Tuesday)." Irish, Jig (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune is a member of the large "Gold Ring (1) (The)" family of tunes (c.f. the first part). 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.
