Neary's jig is associated with the Mayo born fiddle player Jimmy
Neary who emigrated to Chicago in the 1920s. The home of Jimmy
and his wife Eleanor was regarded as a musical haven in Chicago
for Irish musicians and this jig is one of a number of rare tunes
associated with them. This tune was recorded by Johnny McGreevy
on his Philo LP.
