CNOIC UISNACH (Hill of Uisnach). Irish, Air (4/4 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. O'Neill (1922) says: "I am informed by our liberal contributor, Mr. Francis E. Walsh of San Francisco, that variants of the above air are known to several of his musical acquaintances but by different names such as Knuck Usnach Gathering; Knuck Costhnach; The Coming of Lugh; and The Poor Man's Friend. Mr. O'Donohue, whose setting is presented, insists that it is the true air of Willy Reilly, the old time favorite of an earlier generation. The melody is the real thing however."

Source for notated version: P.J. O'Donohue (San Francisco) [O'Neill].
