CRONIN'S RAMBLES (Triallta Uí Cróinín). Irish, Hornpipe. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Perhaps the title was O'Neill's: Cronin emigrated from County Tipperary and lived in Troy, New York, before settling in Chicago.

Source for notated version: Chicago fiddler Edward Cronin, originally from County Tipperary [O'Neill]. Cronin (c. 1838-c. 1918) was originally from Limerick Junction, County Tipperary and was a weaver by trade. O'Neill considered him one of the two best fiddlers in Chicago, and had a wealth of tunes from him. O'Niell traveled twelve miles each way to his house for two years, playing and transcribing tunes, until they had a falling out (which O'Neill confessed he was at a loss to understand, although placing it squarely on Cronin, who "never forgot or forgave" a perceived slight).
