This is a competitive solo set dance.

The song "Lannigan's Ball" is done to the tune of "Hurry the Jug," minus the repeat of the second part.

I found this tune in standard notation as number 971 in Francis O'Neill, The Dance Music of Ireland, ed. Francis O'Neill, arr. James O'Neill (Chicago: Lyon & Healy, 1907) 167. The tune is in the public domain in the United States.

Transcription to tablature for mandolin is my own original work, as is formatting for the World Wide Web. The copyright statement below applies to my work and not to the tune itself.
