Inghean Uí Muireachaidh - Miss MacMurray

MacMurray Family Crest
MacMurray Family Crest

Nothing is known of the subject, and tehe words afford no clue to her location or identity. It will be noticed that the tune is not attributed to Carolan by the manuscript, though it is not uncharistaristic of his style. On the otherhand, the words are so attributed, though they are not in his usual manner.

Táth luighim-se ar leaba san oich'e
Thig creach ar mo chroidhe is míle osna i mo lár;
'Mo chodla tráth bhiom níl flaitheas ar a' tsaoghil
Nach agam a híos tráth mhaireas mo shuan.
