KERRYMAN'S VISIT TO DUBLIN, THE. Irish, Jig (6/8 time). D Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Peter Kennedy states that this melody is popular as a fiddle tune, as a march and as a Highland Schottische. Lucy Broadwood (JFSS 5) comments that this tune family is widely known in Ireland and Scotland, and can be found (in either long or short forms) as the melody for the songs "The Crafty Wee Bony," "Lucy's Flitting," and a fife-dance version of "Lass o' Glenshee," while Cazden (et al, Folk Songs of the Catskills, 1982) adds Ord's "The Road to Dundee," and his Catskill Mountain (New York) collected song "The Hills of Glenshee."
