I love slip jigs and I enjoy playing them. Patrick W. Joyce collected this one from David Grady, a flute player from Ardpatrick in County Limerick, but he did not get the tune's name. 'David Grady's' sounds good to me. Mr. Joyce's collection was published in 1876. I have it in my library, and my copy once belonged to a Bríd O'Callaghan from County Limerick. She signed the book in 1961, when she was 16 years old. I wonder where she is now. Wherever you are, Bríd, this tune lives on and I play it here for you.
