Paddy Conneely, the Galway piper.
KISS IN THE SHELTER. Irish, Slip Jig. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Irish collector George Petrie [1] (1790-1866) noted the tune is "A Connaught Jigg." Petrie echoes the earlier remarks by Dublin dentist Henry Hudson (1798–1889), from The Dublin Magazine (January, 1843):

A merry Connaught jig--in the old 9/8 time,--in Paddy Conneely's version. It is often enquired after by young gentlemen at the Galway balls, about supper time, under the name of "Kiss in the Shelter."
