Kilmaley Jig (The)

I learned The Kilmaley Jig from Terry Bingham’s CD “Traditional Irish Music from Doolin, Co. Clare”, which is one of my all-time favourites. He follows this tune with “Billy McCormick’s“, another lovely jig. Kilmaley is a parish here in Co. Clare, close to Ennis.

Kilmovee Jig (The)

The Kilmovee Jig is a common session tune which I associate with my friend Dom Keogh, a great bodhran player from that area in County Mayo. I lived with Dom for a few month here in Doolin, and it was always one of his favourites. It has been recorded on a few CDs, including a nice version by Mary & Gary Shannon on the “Sanctuary Sessions” CD from Cruise’s pub in Ennis. Gavin Whelan also recorded a nice version.
