MOVING BOG , THE (Na Portaigh Chreathacha). AKA and see "Miss Rae's Reel," "Rachel Rae," "Moving Bog of Allen," "Bashful Bachelor (1) (The)," "Don't Bother Me," "Courting Them All." Irish, Reel. Ireland, Munster. E Flat Major (Carlin): D Major (Breathnach, Stanford/Petrie). Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Stanford/Petrie): AABB (Carlin): AA'BB' (Breathnach). Not related to "Moving Bog (1) (The)." Identified as a Munster reel by Stanford/Petrie (1905). Breathnach (1976) says that it appears that "Rachel Rae," composed by Scottish violinist John Lowe around 1815, is the original title for the tune. Actually, "Rachel Rae" predates 1815, having been printed in 1794 in fiddler-composer Archibald Duff's collection.
