Since this is a jig, you should strive to keep up a steady pace. Preferably fast, but an uneven tempo will mar this piece more than being a little slow will. Downbeats are on the first and fourth notes of a measure.

This well-known tune can serve as a good warmup exercise for mandolin players.

If you like, you can hear a MIDI file of "Irish Washerwoman".
