The dance is described on page 32 of this pdf: http://www.folkdancecamp.org/old_syllabus/fdc1965.pdf

That should start things rolling.

Re: Music for the Seige of Ennis

"I've heard Salmon Tails and The Grand Old Dame Britannia called the Siege of Ennis. Does it matter? If you are after the tune for the dance then any or all of these wiil fit as will any single reel or polka played at the appropriate speed."

Re: Music for the Seige of Ennis

"The Siege of Ennis is a dance called 'Tom Pate' in England; itself a corruption of the title of the French dannce 'Le Tempete' . A quick search turned up a reel called 'The Tempest' Whether it has anything to do with the dance I know not. As a practical bit of advice casual dancers can manage single reels (Rakes of Mallow) or polkas best … You could try the Kilrush Polkas (single reels), Kilrush isn't a long way from Ennis"

Gerry, I have transcribed a very interesting explanation found in a google search, and will send it to you via PM- much too long to post here, and a nuisance to read through in its pdf form.
