LOUGH GILL. AKA and see "Cashel Jig (The)," "Millpond (The)," "Paddy Carty's," "Shores of Lough Gill (The)." Irish, Jig. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Perhaps the name derives (or vice-versa) from The Lough Gill Quartet, made of John Cawley (flute), Sarah Hobbs (fiddle), Sonny Brogan (accordion), and Bill Harte (accordion), who recorded the jig in 1941.
