LONDONDERRY CLOG. AKA and see "Londonderry Hornpipe (The)," "Delaney's Clog," "Showman's Clog." Irish (originally), Canadian; Clog. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCCDDEEFF. The tune was a favorite, records O'Neill (1913), of County Wexford piper Johnny Cash (1832-1909), 'Cash the Piper'; in fact so much that it was locally known as "Cash's Hornpipe." Derry was renamed Londonderry as a result of its being granted to the Corporation of London after the confiscation of the O'Neill estates in 1609. It was 'planted' as a colony by the twelve City Corporations (Matthews, 1972). See Londonderry Hornpipe (The) for more.
