Tune of the Day: Maloney's Wife
Traditional Irish jig
The earliest printing of this jig appears in O'Farrell's Collection of National Irish Music for the Union Pipes, published in 1804. The tune also appears, however, in a few 18th-century musicians' manuscripts, such as the 1788 copybook by flute player Thomas Molyneaux of Shelburne, Nova Scotia.
