I think I came across an article to that effect, like Trenchmore might
be a class of dances from Ireland. I think I also once heard of an
account of a court event of Elizabeth I where there was money paid to
the three who danced Trenchmore.

That's the one we're planning for the Candlemas event this weekend
(hope you can make it). But I'm still curious if there are other
versions being danced in the SCA.

Yeah, you just need a nice beat. I think I was at a dance where we
used Female Sailor faute de mieux.
