Bayard (1981) thinks it is of Irish origin, while Petrie (1855) gives a note saying it is no older than the 18th century. Joyce (1873) remarks "this was a favourite dance tune, twenty-five or thirty years ago in the county Limerick, where I learned it from constantly hearing it played by fiddlers and pipers. I also heard it often called by the name of 'The Peeler's Jacket'." Cape Breton fiddler Johnny Wilmot recorded the tune in the 1960's.
