Source for notated version
: - O'Gallagher [O'Neill]. The only 'O'Gallagher' O'Neill references in his Irish Minstrels and Musicians (1913) was a Timothy O'Gallagher, a piper from Clofert, who "played most excellently" for an exhibition in Ireland in the 1860's. He is probably not O'Neill's source for the tune. A rather more likely source is Charles O'Gallagher, a member with O'Neill of the Chicago Irish Music Club in the first decade of the 20th century.
Chicago Irish Music Club, c. 1903. Piper Charles O'Gallagher is in the middle row, fifth from left.
