Tune of the Day: The Races at Carrick

Traditional Irish jig

The earliest known appearance of this jig is in Francis O'Neill's celebrated collection Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1903. Carrick is a name shared by over 30 townlands all over Ireland, so it seems difficult to establish which one the title might refer to.
