    This is NOT a traditional set of Ireland.  The set was composed in May 2005 in
              Summit County, Ohio.
    All four couples dance simultaneously throughout the set.  All Figures have
              the same quantity of measures.
    Long body:   couples in waltz hold, dancing a lively step (for both IN and OUT: 
              1 and 2 and 1-2-3), dance the following eight-bar pattern four times: 
              dance in-and-out once (not a slide)4; house to the next position on
              the right, making two clockwise revolutions4.
    Gents dance forward on the left foot and ladies begin forward on the right foot.
    Bar counts (quantities of measures) for patterns are shown in bold.
    The total bar count for each Figure includes an eight-bar introduction of music.
    Abbreviations are used in a version recorded below.
