Jimmy Smith says:
There is a very popular Irish Ceilidh Dance of the same name.  It is quite a different dance.  So be warned when asked for it at a ceilidh the punter may be talking of a different dance from this one.

Music:  48 bar jigs (e.g.  own tune though I prefer other tunes).
Thumbnail:  Circles, stars, balance and swing partner and opposite, do-si-dos, forward and back and on.
