MUNSTER (JIG) [1], THE. AKA and see "Best in the Bag (The)," "Green Fields of Miltown," "Happy Mistake (The)," "Jackson's Mistake," "Jim O'Connor's," "John Blessing's Delight," "King Jig (The)," "King of Jigs," "Miss Monroe’s Jig," "Mrs. Monroe’s (1), ," "Mrs. Monroe's Jig," "Mrs. Spens Monroe/Monro's Jig." Irish, Jig (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Moylan): AABB (Deloughery). The melody can be traced to "Mrs. Spens Monroe," printed in Glasgow by James Aird in the late 18th century. The tune (as "Munster Jig") was in the repertoire of influential Sliabh Luachra fiddler Pádraig O'Keeffe (1887-1963), who passed it on to his student, Dennis Murphy (1910-1974). Sliabh Luachra accordion player Johnny O'Leary (1923-2004) paired "Munster Jig (1)" with with "Cailleach an Airgid." Compare also with 19th century County Cork cleric and uilleann piper James Goodman's "Humors of Glenath", and, in the first strain, "Caravat Jig (The)."
