ANTRIM SQUARE SET (en)

Set původně pochází z Austrálie a jeho autorem je Des Jackson ze Sydney. A protože je původem z hrabství Antrim, pojmenoval tento set podle tohoto hrabství. Slovo „square“ v názvu vyjadřuje skutečnost, že ve všech třech figurách setu se využívá figury, která je známá zejména v country tancích jako grand square. Popis tance je z knihy Pata Murphyho „Aplles in Winter“.
