MRS. COLONEL NEYNOE. Scottish, Reel. F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Castle Neynoe is in County Sligo. This passage appears in Charles Samuel Stewart's Sketches of Society in Great Britain and Ireland, vol. 2 (1834, p. 253):

The mansion from which I now write is the property of Colonel Neynoe, of the royal army. Mrs. Neynoe is a Bolton, a near relative of my companion. When in Dublin, we received an invitation to visit the castle before returning to England, and have now, for some days, been most hospitably entertained beneath its roof. It is a handsome and spacious modern structure of stone in castellated architecture, embattled and turreted, standing on the swell of a rising ground, in the midst of extensive and closely shaded plantations. The Colonel and his lady are the only members of the family at present at home.
