Source for notated version: Chicago fiddler, originally from County Tipperary, who was also a machinest, weaver and composer. O'Neill said of him: "...he would play on for hours at a time such tunes as memory presented, his features while so engaged remaining as set and impassive as the sphinx...it was his open boast that he never forgot nor forgave an injury" [O'Neill]. Edward Cronin [O'Neill].

Printed source: O'Neill (Krassen), 1976; p. 176. O'Neill (Music of Ireland: 1850 Melodies), 1903; No. 1594, p. 295.
