HURRY THE JUG [1] (Cuir Tart an Cruiscin). AKA and see "Once on a morning of sweet recreation." Irish, Set Dance (6/8 time). E Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Joyce): AAB (Roche): AABB (O'Neill): AABC (Kennedy). "Hurry the Jug [1]" was learned by music collector and writer P.W. Joyce as a boy in Limerick in the 1840's. It was also entered into the mid-19th century music manuscript collection of County Cork uilleann piper and Church of Ireland cleric James Goodman [1]. A later form of the tune is the song/tune "Lanigan's Ball." The second strain is twice the length of the 'A'; not untypical for set dances.
