Tune of the Day: Denis Delaney

Traditional Irish jig

The earliest known appearance of this melody is in Crosby's Irish Musical Repository (London, 1808), in which it features as the vehicle for the song “In Sweet Tipperary, the pride of the throng”, also known as “Sheelah O'Shannon”. The tune was later published as a jig under the title “Denis Delaney” in Francis O'Neill's Music of Ireland (1903).
