The Irish Jig is a Scottish caricature of an Irish person, gesturing angrily and frowning, and also a tribute to Irish stepdancing. It is based on traditional Irish steps but with arm movements added. The Scottish version of the Irish Jig is meant to parody an angry Irish washerwoman when she finds out some neighbourhood boys have knocked all her clean washing to the ground.
