MULALLY'S (JIG). AKA and see "Drumraney Lass/Drunraney Lass," "Lark on the Strand (1)," "Paddy Hughes' Jig." "Stolen Purse (2) (The)," "William Mulally's Jig." Irish, Double Jig (6/8 time). A Dorian ('A' part) & G Major ('B' part). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune is associated with the playing of Anglo concertina player William Mullaly (1884-1955) of Rathconrath, near Mulligar, County Westmeath, in the eastern part of the Irish midlands. Mullaly (also spelled Mulally, Mullaley, etc.) was the first Irish concertina player to make commercial recordings, and recorded the jig in the late 1920's. Mullaly sailed for America in 1910, bringing his concertina with him to New York. He made his only ten recordings in Camden, N.J. in 1926 and 1927, but reportedly gave up commercial recording after that, and gave his concertina to a nephew in Philadelphia after which he becomes obscure.
