HIBERNIA. Irish, Air (6/8 time) or Jig (6/8 time). C Major (Manson): D Major (Goodman): A Major (Kennedy). Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB (Goodman, Manson): AABBAACAABB (Kennedy). A note in Manson's Hamilton's Universal... (1853) indicates the tune is "a favourite Irish air." The tune appears twice in the large mid-19th century music manuscript collection of County Cork cleric and uilleann piper Canon James Goodman, although from the context of tunes on the same page and contiguous pages, it would seem Goodman obtained the tune from Scottish sources.
