Was this a slip jig? There is one with the name "Little Fair Cannavans"
that I believe was played by Seamus Ennis.
I always took the Cannavan in the title to mean a family name.

Can someone offer a translation into ENglish of the above title for a
popular slip jig? In my Irish dictionary, "ceannbhain" is white-haired, and
"ban" is white, so that doesn't add up to much... Thanks.
