The "Tomgraney Castle" name appears to originate with Francis O'Neill's ''Dance Music of Ireland," published in 1907, which included a number of tunes he collected during a visit to his wife's home in east Clare. This may be one of them. Alternatively, O'Neill may have picked it up from an older collection and renamed it from "Loch Leven Castle" to "Tomgraney Castle."
