Luachrachán’s Jig (The)

The Luachrachán’s Jig (or “Lúradán’s” and all other kinds of spellings – but it’s called “Luachrachán’s” in Junior Crehan’s Book) was composed by Junior Crehan from Ballimackea near Miltown Malbay. It is a common session tune that I learned from Junior Crehan’s Daughter Angela Crotty at a session in Gus O’Connor’s Pub.
