Tune of the Day: The Boys of Ballinafad

Traditional Irish jig

This jig first appears in Francis O'Neill's collection Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1903. It is however closely related to the Scottish jig “Teviot Brig”, which was first printed in Nathaniel Gow's Complete Repository in 1817.

Ballinafad (meaning “mouth of the long ford”) is a village in the south of County Sligo in the west of Ireland.
