"The Irish Washerwoman" is a traditional jig known to have been played throughout the British Isles, and in North America. Although usually considered an Irish tune, some scholars claim that it is English in origin, derived from the seventeenth century tune "Dargason" .
This jig was incorporated as the first movement of the "Irish Suite", a collection of traditional tunes arranged for orchestra by American composer Leroy Anderson in 1946.
