MOLLY FROM LONGFORD [2] (Mailí ón Longfort). Irish, Single Jig (12/8 time). E Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. The tune is more famously set as a reel under the "Molly from Longford (1)" title and, in another version, "Pay the Girl Her Fourpence." See also curate and fiddler Rev. Luke Donnellan's (1878-1952) reel "Kitty from Longford" from his c. 1909 music manuscript collection, which is a related, perhaps cognate melody (there are both significant similarities and differences in the tunes).


Additional notes
Source for notated version : - Brother Gildas (a schoolteacher and member of the De La Salle order), who got it from Richard O'Mealy (1875-1946), a piper and pipe-maker born in County Westmeath who lived in Cork, Dublin and Belfast at various times.

Printed sources : - Breathnach (Ceol Rince na hÉireann vol. IV), 1996; No. 74, p. 36.
