Additional notes
Source for notated version : - George Petrie notes the versions he gives are from "P. Carew's MS". Researcher Nicholas Carolan of the Irish Traditional Music Archive records that P. Carew (or, as collector William Forde gave his name, 'Paddy Carey') was a musically literate professional uilleann piper living in Lag Lane, St Finbarre’s parish, Cork, in the mid-1840's. The area, notes Carolan, was near a military barracks, and was the location of shebeens (illicit bars) and brothels, notorious for poverty and crime. A number of harper Turlough O'Carolan's compositions were in his repertoire, and were the object of collectors.
