This jig is one of the most enduring and popular pieces in the Irish repertoire, and has even spread to other genres. It is, for example, a staple for contra dancing. Connaught (or Connacht) is one four provinces of Ireland (along with Leinster, Munster, and Ulster), named for the ancient tribe who lived there, the Connachta.
Probably the earliest appearances of the tune in print is in R.M. Levey's The First Collection of the Dance Music of Ireland, published in London in 1858.

This is the ninth piece from a collection of 17 Capricci for Flauto Traverso by Italian flutist and composer Filippo Ruge. Born in Rome around 1725, Ruge appears to have spent most of his professional life in France, and especially in Paris, where several of his compositions were published, ranging from small-scale chamber music to large-scale symphonic works.

by Michel Pignolet de Montéclair, for two flutes
This is the second movement of the fourth of six Concerts à deux Flutes Traversières sans Basse by the French Baroque composer Michel Pignolet de Montéclair. Here the French word concert is a synonym of “suite”, and has nothing to do with the Italian concerto. The title of the movement, “La Rieuse”, translates literally as “The Laughing One”.
Thanks to Marco for suggesting this piece!
