GALLAGHER'S FROLIC [3]. AKA and see "Banner (The)," "Golliher's Frolic," "O'Gallagher's Frolics." Irish, Jig (6/8 time). E Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. A variant of "Gallagher's Frolic (1)," and a favorite session tune. O'Neill thought the tune "closely resembled" his printings of "Frieze Breeches (1)/Frieze Britches (1)" and the air "I Buried My Wife and Danced on Her Grave/Top of Her."
