SIT-IN JIG. AKA and see “Con Cassidy's Jig (2)," “Crossing the Oily River.” Irish, Jig (6/8 time). Ireland, County Donegal. The title probably refers 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.”
