Source for notated version : - Robert Lawson [O'Neill].Robert Lawson. Lawson was an uilleann piper mentioned by O'Neill in his Irish Minstrels and Musicians (1913) who inherited a beautiful set of Egan pipes from Aughavas born piper, Sergeant James Early, which had originally belonged to Kerry man ‘Dan’ O’Keeffe (1821-1899). They were stolen from Lawson in a Bowery bar-room in New York after he had been "slipped a Mickey" (i.e. fed some “knock-out drops").
