Standard tuning (fiddle). AABC. O’Neill (1922) remarks: “This fine jig, remarkable for originality of composition, and the technique essential to giving it adequate expression, is a masterpiece of execution at the hands of the amiable Patrick Stack who obligingly scored it on paper, after charming us with it on his fiddle - Coming from Jerry Breen the much admired blind fiddler of North Kerry, it was preserved in the Rice-Walsh manuscript and is now recorded for print for the first time.”
