Tune origins, really. Hunt wants to know if there ever was a Mackilmoyle and if so, who, when, where? Mr. Google is no help!

Also known as Tiddle Took Todfish.

Fiddler Graham Townsend recorded this as "Galop de Malbaie" and believed that Canadian Joe Bouchard composed it. According to Donna Hinds (who also calls it "Mackilmoyle Reel"), it is "very popular at New England dances" (this info from her book The Grumbling Old Woman).
