Family Crest of O' Connor
O'Connor Family Crest

It is not possible to identify the subject of this air; but it is perhaps worth noting that a poem written by an unknown author of Carolan's period (three stanzas) congratulates a person named O'Connor who has obtained a diploma to practice medicine. It begins A Chonchobhair atá hfhurtún-sa dénta' (O'Connor, your fortune is made')
