Source for notated version: "O'Reilly" [O'Neill]. O'Reilly is perhaps blind piper Marin O'Reilly, a contemporary of O'Neill's who won first prize in the pipers' competition at the annual Feis in Dublin in 1901. A half-tone picture of him taken by Father James Fielding was inserted as a frontispiece in O'Neill's Dance Music of Ireland (1907) and reproduced in Irish Minstrels and Musicians (1922, p. 241).
