CAILÍNÍ ARD A' RATHA. AKA and see "Lord Lyndoch." Irish, Highland. Ireland, Donegal. The tune is a variant of the Scottish strathspey "Lord Lyndoch." The tune was obtained from Anthony Helferty, an old fiddler of the Inishowen, Donegal, area who died around 1882, who taught it to John Boyle of Tullycleave (b. 1871) who lived to almost 102 years of age. John taught it to his son, John Patrick Boyle (b. 1920), who still resides on the family farm [Caoimhin Mac Aoidh, 1994].
