James Byrne’s Jig

I learned this from James Byrne who is a great fiddle player from Meenacross, near Glencolmbkille in Donegal.  I'm not sure whether it has another name.  It sounds a bit like a slide to me.  There are quite a few of these tunes which have ended up in Donegal.  They must have taken a wrong turn in Killarney one day.
