KESHCORRAN. Irish, Slow Air (3/4 time). E Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. "A tune with this name was given by me to Dr. Petrie; and it is printed with my name acknowledged in Stanford-Petrie, as I copied it from a MS. written in the neighbourhook of Lough Conn, Co. Mayo. It is in C time: whereas the tune given here from Gorde in in 3/4. Whether the two airs are vatieties of one common melody, I will leave to others to determine. Keshcorran is a well-known mountain in the Co. Sligo" (Joyce).
