LADIES FANCY [2]. AKA and see "Yellow Wattle (1)," "Ladies Walking Stick (The)." Irish, Jig. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. O'Neill (1922) remarks: "This jig, a variant of the much more diversified 'Yellow Wattle' No.353 in O'Neill's Dance Music of Ireland (1907), was sent to me by Prof. P.D. Reilly, a famous dancing master of "London and Castle Island", with the notation: This simple jig was a noted favorite among the two last generations, and quite good enough for the present when well played." Breathnach's "Yellow Wattle (1)," collected from West Commons, north Kerry, fiddler Paddy O'Sullivan is a cognate setting, with the addition of a third part.
