CAOINEADH UÍ NÉILL (O'Neill's Lament). AKA - "Caoine Uí Néill." Irish, Air. The title may refer to Hugh O'Neill, who took part in the Battle of Kinsale and the Flight of the Earls at the beginning of the 17th century. Seán Keane says that although the O'Neills were from Ulster, the tune appears to be from Munster. Séamus Ennis recorded the melody from Pádraig Ó Caoimh around 1945.
