Tune of the Day: Trip to Killarney
Traditional Irish jig
Killarney is a town in County Kerry, southwestern Ireland. This jig is taken from O'Farrell's Pocket Companion for the Irish or Union Pipe, first published around 1805. Irish scholar Donal O'Sullivan suggested that the piece may be a composition of O'Farrell's, and had no doubts it was composed by an uilleann piper.
