JACKSON'S COVE. Irish, Hornpipe. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). A version of "Groves Hornpipe (The)." 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. The tune is attributed by Goodman to the 18th century gentleman-piper Walker 'Piper' Jackson, of the townland of Lisdaun, parish of Ballingarry, Aughrim, County Limerick. Thus Goodman's title, "Jackson's Cove," may be a miss-hearing of "Jackson's Grove(s)", meaning Jackson's version of the "Groves Hornpipe."
