SALLY HEGARTY'S. AKA and see "High Road to Dublin (2) (The)." Irish, Slip Jig (9/8 time). Ireland, County Donegal. A popular slip jig in County Donegal. The band Altan recorded the tune using the title “Humors of Whiskey (3)", a title that has different versions: "Humors of Whiskey (2) (The)", for example, shares the second strain with "Sally Hegarty's" but the first strains are different. Caoimhin Mac Aoidh says the tune was passed on primarily by the Deargs (the Byrne brothers) of Kilcar. The name “Sally Hegarty’s” was the one Donegal fiddler John Doherty always used for the tune, named after a 10 key melodeon player from Teelin, Carrick, Co. Donegal.
