BUACHAILLÍN ÓG , AN. Irish, Air. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Buachaillín Óg = a young lad. The second part of this tune is the same as the first of "Cailín Deas Donn (1) (An)/Pretty Brown Girl (2) (The)." The melody appears in the mid-19th century music manuscript collection of Church of Ireland cleric James Goodman (1828-1896). Goodman, who spoke Irish and played the uilleann pipes, collected from tradition in Cork and elsewhere in Munster, and obtained tunes from manuscripts and printed sources as well. Collector George Petrie obtained the tune from the Patrick Carew manuscript.
