Good beginner jigs and reels for guitar

I'm a decent guitarist looking to learn some trad songs to join in at sessions. Any recommendations?

Sorry you didn't get any replies, the forum has been quiet lately.

I think you should pick something that you like yourself, something that grabs you, that way you'll enjoy learning it. I'm a whistle player and I wouldn't go out of my way to learn a tune if I didn't like it so much. Though I would pick up a lot of these tunes I'm not so crazy about at sessions by ear. That's fine cause there's no practice involved at home. But if I like something and want to introduce it to a session I will actually study it at home.

Depends also what direction you want to go in. Are you talking about backing tunes or playing the actual melody itself on guitar?
