NORAH OGE O'RYAN. Irish. The name of this air appears in Luke Wadding's (the Bishop of Ferns) A Pious Garland of Godly Songs for the Solace of his Friends and Neighbours in Afflictions (1680)--wherein it is entitled "Norah oge nee Yeorane," a mangled form of the Irish Gaelic. It was the identified air for one of Wadding's hymns and Christmas Carols [Grattan-Flood, A History of Irish Music].
