YOUNG EDMOND O'NEILL (Eamonn Og Ua Niall). Irish, Hornpipe. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. James O'Neill's researcher and biographer, Caoimhin Mac Aoidh, is of the opinion this tune was one of a few that James O'Neill himself composed; his eldest son was named Edmond O'Neill. Curiously, it was not included in Francis O'Neill's followup volume, Dance Music of Ireland (1907).
