MICKY CONNELL'S HORNPIPE (Cornphíopa Mhicí Uí Chonaill). AKA and see "Billy Taylor's Fancy." Irish, Hornpipe. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. O'Neill prints a version as "Billy Taylor's Fancy," and the melody appears twice in the Goodman manuscripts as "Man of War" and "Constantine Hornpipe."
Source for notated version: from a manuscript attributed to the Pigott family, County Kerry, in which it appeared as an untitled tune. Breathnach found the tune and the title in another manuscript in his collection [Breathnach].
