Tune of the Day: Limerick Lasses

Traditional Irish reel

The earliest appearance of this tune in print is in the first volume of Irish violinist R.M. Levey's Dance Music of Ireland (1858), where it is set as a polka, in 2/4 time. It has also appeared under a few other names, including “Limerick Lads” and “The Pretty Little Boy”.
