JENNY/JENNIE PIPPIN (Sineidin Pippin). AKA and see "Jenny Nettles Fancy," "Tommy Peoples' Reel (1)." Irish, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'B.

Source for notated version: "Ennis" [O'Neill]. Chicago police patrolman, piper and flute player John Ennis, was originally from County Kildare. O'Neill writes (Irish Folk Music, p. 37):

His tunes were, as a rule, choice and tasty, and his interest in the success of [O'Neill's collecting] hobby was displayed in a curious way. Suspecting that several pet tunes were being withheld from us by a couple of good players he conceived the scheme of ingratiating himself with the musicians. Affecting unconcern, he contrived to memorize the treasured tunes, and then had them promptly transferred to James O'Neill's notebook.
