MISS WALLACE [1] (Ingean Uí/Ni Uallais/Bailis). AKA and see "Flowers of Limerick (3),” "Moving Bog(s) (5) (The)," "Seomra in Uachtar (An)," "Upper Room (The)," "Wallace Twins (The)." Irish, Reel.

Additional notes
Source for notated version : - Francis O'Neill learned the tune from an accomplished West Clare flute player (and Chicago police patrolman) named Patrick "Big Pat" O'Mahony, a man of prodigious physique of whom he said: "the 'swing' of his execution was perfect, but instead of 'beating time' with his foot on the floor like most musicians he was never so much at ease as when seated in a chair tilted back against a wall, while both feet swung rhythmically like a double pendulum" [O'Neill, Irish Folk Music].

Printed sources : - O'Neill (Music of Ireland: 1850 Melodies), 1903; No. 1452, p. 269. O'Neill (Dance Music of Ireland: 1001 Gems), 1907; No. 685, p. 121.
