Traditional Irish jig
The earliest known appearance of this tune is in a 1843 issue of Henry Hudson's The Dublin Monthly Magazine, under the title “The Night of Fun”. It was then included in numerous collections as “The Maid on the Green”. Collector Francis O'Neill wrote:
I believe it was known all over Ireland as well as at my boyhood home, until I visited Ireland in 1906, and found that the competitors at the Munster Feis seemed to be unacquainted with it.
Cape Breton fiddlers sometimes call the tune “Trip to Dublin”, by which name the jig was called in Köhler's Violin Repository of Dance Music (1885).
