X:1 % T:Air [20] O:Donegal M: L:1/8 Q"Slow" B:Padraig Mac Aodh O'Neill - Songs of Uladh (1904, p. 22) S:"I got this air from Seumas og mac Fhionnlaoich, a sailor boy S:and fiddler of Port-na-blath. He sang it to me one day when we were S:on board the smack "St. Andrew," returning home from the island S:of Torach. The air is well known in the north of Dun-na-nGall, and is S:sung to a new ballad called "Maolmordha," written by Niall S:mac Bruide of Faithche-mor. (See Gael, December, 1903.)"
