ANNIE O'NEILL. Irish, Reel. G Major. AB (O'Neill/1850): AA'B (O'Neill/Krassen).

Source for notated version: fiddler Edward Cronin (b. 1838), originally from Limerick Junction, County Tipperary, who emigrated to the United States and eventually settled in Chicago, where he became a member of the Irish Music Club. Cronin was suspicious and tempermental, but a very gifted fiddler--O'Neill thought only one other fiddler in the city equal to him. [O'Neill].
