I first heard it from Dervish, it's a wonderful and haunting tune (cracks my bones when I'm playing it on the box though) :)

I like that, I;ll have to give it a go on the fiddle
This is one of my favorites. My group (after my insistence) puts it in a set between "The Great Cairn" and "Gallagher's Frolic"
Killavil Jig was one of the tunes I learned from Liz Kane at Catskills Irish Arts Week in 2009. It came up at a session in NY last night so I was happy that I could play a bit..nice jig!

i learnt this last week in the willie clancy banjo classes ... quite easy to pick up and add ornamenttion


One of the first ones I learned from my banjo teacher. It does pop up once in a while in NYC sessions...

I heard it first on a contemporary Christian album by Robin Mark. I can't remember the name of the album but the song on the album is Killavil. It's a bit faster than the above example but it is very well done and worth hearing. Blaine Chastain has a version of it on his lesson website.
