MAGOWAN'S JIG (Port Mic-Gabain). AKA and see "Teetotal." Irish, Slip Jig (9/8 time). C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. The melody was printed as "Teetotal" in William Bradbury Ryan's Ryan's Mammoth Collection (Boston, 1883). There is no source for the tune mentioned in O'Neil's Music of Ireland (1903), but presumably, Francis O'Neill was well aware of the earlier printing and changed a title he disliked and/or in order to secure an Irish provenance for it.
