Tune of the Day: Owen Malone

Traditional Irish jig

This jig was first published in Glasgow in 1799 by James Aird, under the title “Miss Dawson's Whim”. Later, it was published in Irish violinist R.M. Levely's 2nd collection (1873) as “Molony's Jig”; “Malone” and “Molony” are so close as to strongly suggest one title was a mishearing of the other. The first strain of the melody is shared with the earlier English tunes “Shepherd's Jigg” and “Trip to Ankerwick”, but the second strain differs.
