Known to the fiddlers and % pipers on this side of the Atlantic in later years as "Apples in % Winter", it was printed under that name in the O'Neill collections, % but no variant of the popular jig so far in circulation, displays the % skill of that played by the versatile Billy Hanafin, proficient on % both instruments. % It may be pertinent to add that the Jig named "Apples in Winter" % in O'Farrell's Collection of National Irish Music for the Union Pipes, % London, 1797, is identical with "Gillan's Apples" in former O'Neill % collections.
