Tune of the Day: Bantry Bay Boys
Traditional Irish jig
This jig is taken from Riley's Country Dances for 1798, and was later notably republished in O'Neill's 1922 collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody.
Bantry Bay is located in County Cork, Ireland, and runs approximately 35 km (22 mi) from northeast to southwest into the Atlantic Ocean.
