SPLALSHING OF THE CHURN [2], THE (Gliogar an mheadair). AKA and see "Dublin Boys (The)," "Dublin Streets," "Fig for a Kiss (1) (A)," ," "Gáire na mBan," "Humors of Bottle Hill," "Milk the Churn," "Night of Fun (The)," "Old Dutch Churn (The)," "She is fit for a kiss," "Two in a Gig." Irish, Slip Jig (9/8 time). E Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. O’Neill (1922) remarks: “This spirited Slip Jig is a variant of ‘Dublin Streets’, obtained from Mr. Ennis of the Irish Music Club of Chicago, and published in former O'Neill Collections. ‘The Splashing of the Churn’, or in Irish Glugur an Meadair is the original name of the tune. Following is another version of it [“Humors of Bottle Hill”], obtained thru the courtesy of Sergt. James P. Walsh of Chicago whose manuscript collection has been a prolific source of many desirable melodies hitherto unpublished.” A version of the tune (under the “Splashing” title) appears earlier than O’Neill (who also published it as “Fig for a Kiss") in P.M. Haverty’s One Hundred Irish Airs Arranged for the Pianoforte (New York, 1858).
