SNUG LITTLE GIRL FROM BANSHA, THE. Irish, Air (6/8 time, "lively"). G Major/Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. "Bears a close resemblance to ‘Ag an mboithrin buidhe’ of Petrie (Ancient Music of Ireland). There was a song to this air, the subject of which was 'The Snug Little Girl', but I have not been able to procure a copy of it. A 'snug little girl' is one who has a snug comfortable fortune. Bansha, a well known village in Tipperary at the mouth of the Glen of Aherlow" [Joyce].
