John McHugh’s

“John McHugh’s Jig” is a very common session tune here in Doolin. I learned it at one of the Super Sunday sessions in O’Connor’s Pub with Noel O’Donoghue, Sean Vaughan and Hugh Healy.

It is part of one of my favourite set, which is associated with the Kilfenora Ceili Band, and consists of “Sweet Marie” (aka “Parnell’s March”), another jig/slide (can’t remember the name!) and finishes with “John McHugh’s”.
