SIT-IN JIG. AKA and see "Cats in the Village," “Con Cassidy's Jig (2)," “Crossing the Oily River," "Flying Boy (The)," "French Reaper (The)," "Jim Crow Quadrille (3)," "Nine Pins (1)," "Quadrille 2nd Set – La Poule," "Turfahun Barndance (The).” Irish, Jig (6/8 time). Ireland, County Donegal. The title may refer to ‘staying at home and playing’. Caoimhin Mac Aoidh remarks that most Donegal fiddlers learned the tune from the playing of Con Cassidy. The first part seems similar to the air “Shamrock Shore.” The group Altan recorded it under the title “Con Cassidy’s” and Donegal fiddler Packie Manus Byrne calls it “Crossing the Oily River.”
