Carolan's Draught

This spirited harp melody was obtained from an old MS music book in the posession of Father Walsh, P.P. of Sneem, in the county of Kerry. The peculiarites of its style and of its flow of melody, can leave no doubt as its being a genuine composition of the eminent composer whose name it bears. As it seems to be known only in Munster, it may be regarded as one of the tunes composed by the bard while sojourning in that province and which were not collected during his lifetime. ...Donal O'Sullivan vol 2 pg 112.
