MICHAEL GORMAN'S. AKA and see "Andrew Carey," "Hills of Tipperary (The)," "Paddy Taylor's," "Tipperary Hills." Irish, Hop Jig (9/8 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune is Sligo fiddler Michael Gorman's idiosyncratic rendering of the slip jig "Tipperary Hills," known in England and Scotland as "Andrew Carey" (and variant titles). Gorman plays it in 9/8 time, although with a similar rhythm to a single jig, the result giving the feeling of a 3/4 tune, like a mazurka.
