KITTY O'NEILL [4]. AKA and see "Johnny Cronin's Fancy," "Johnny Cronin's Reel," "Cronin's Reel (1)." Irish, Reel. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. No relation to "Kitty O'Neill (3)." It does, however, resemble "Kitty Sharpe's Champion" aka "Everybody's Fancy." Possibly, O'Neill confused the names of the two sand jigs in Ryan's Mammoth Collection (1883) when he published this reel-time setting. A version of the melody can also be found in Harding's Original Collection (1928) set as an untitled dotted-rhythm "straight jig", akin to a hornpipe. O'Neill did not cite a source for the tune, and the provenance may not be Irish.
