KILLASHANDRA LASSES, THE (Cailinide Ua Cill-A'-Sean-Rata). AKA and see "Bachelor's Walk," "Humors of Castle Lyons/Humors of Castlelyons (The)," "Judy McFadden's," "Patrick Maloney's Favorite," "Rambling Pitchfork (The)," "Road to Granard (The)," "Roland's Return." Irish, Double Jig (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB'. Killashandra [1] is a town in County Cavan, once a thriving center for the linen trade, with origins in the Ulster Plantation. The tune, particularly in the first strain, belongs to a wide and varied tune family that includes both minor and modal settings, but which retains similar melodic contour (see, for example, 1st strain of Ryan's "Judy McFadden's." See note for "annotation:Humors of Castlelyons (The)" for more on this tune family.
