Additional notes
Source for notated version : - "Cronin" [O'Neill]. Chicago fiddler Edward Cronin was born in the 1840's in Limerick Junction, County Tipperary, Ireland. He was a skilled fiddler whose playing O'Neill greatly admired, and had a vast repertoire. O'Neill transcribed many tunes from him, until they had a falling out over a seeming;y trivial matter (to O'Neill, who did not elaborate).
