Father Tom’s Wager (jig)

Here's a jig about a betting Priest, or a Priestly bet.  I don't know how he fared in the gamble but the jig flutters on to this day.

There are a few versions of this knocking about.  This is more or less like the one in O'Neill's Dance Music of Ireland.

    Okay, it’s killing me. What’s the name of the first song (reel?) you play in your introduction medley? That skipping up and down the scale is about the most awesome thing I’ve heard. I want nothing more than to play that song- and I’d settle for playing it half as well as you!
