Tune of the Day: The Lasses of Solohod

Traditional Irish slip jig

This Irish 9/8-time jig is taken from Francis O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in 1922. O'Neill remarks that this tune is a variant of “The Rakes of Solohod”, which had previously been published in his Dance Music of Ireland (1907).

Solohod (also spelled Sollohod or Solohead) is a townland in County Tipperary, located near Limerick Junction, about 40 km from Limerick city.
