Tune of the Day: The Streams Of Kilnaspig
Traditional Irish jig
This Irish jig is taken from Francis O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in 1922. O'Neill cites the “Pat. Dunne manuscript” as his source.
Kilnaspig (also spelled Kilnaspic, Killnaspic, Killinaspic, or Killinaspick, from the Irish Coill an Easpaig, meaning “bishop's wood”) is a small village in the south of County Kilkenny, Ireland.
