FOXY MARY . Irish, Jig. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB'. A variant, albeit a distanced one, of the melody printed by Joyce. The earliest appearance of this version of the tune in print is in Church of Ireland cleric James Goodman's mid-19th century 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.
