DOCTOR O'NEILL [2]. AKA and see "Barney O'Neill," "Young Tim Murphy." Irish, Jig (6/8 time). D Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody appears in the 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, as well as obtained tunes from manuscripts and printed sources. Francis O'Neill prints a version of the tune as "Barney O'Neill" but both are members of the "Kitty Lie Over" "Young Tim Murphy" tune family. The tune appears as "Brian O'Niel" in the 1838 music copybook of Lake District (northwest England) musician William Irwin.
