MY MARY CULLENAN (A Mháire ni Chuillionáin). Irish, Air (2/4 time). D Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Joyce notes that this is a different air than the similarly-titled "Móirín ní Chuillionáin" (a version of the well-known "Rose Tree (1)").

Source for notated version: copied by P.W. Joyce from the Forde manuscript, which were coped in turn from a manuscript lent to Forde by piper Patrick Carey of County Cork (who is probably the Patrick Carew who supplied Petrie with so many tunes) [Joyce].

Printed sources: Joyce (Old Irish Folk Music and Songs), 1909; No. 449, p. 252.
