Additional notes
Source for notated version : - "O'Reilly" [O'Neill]. O'Neill perhaps refers to uilleann piper Martin O'Reilly, whom he profiled in Irish Minstrels and Musicians (1913, pp. 239-240). O'Reilly, who was blind, was a native of Galway and an accomplished player but destitute man when he won the first prize at the pipers' competition at the annual Feis in Dublin in 1901. O'Neill's friend, Father Fielding, took his picture, which O'Neill used as a frontispiece in his Dance Music of Ireland (1907).
