O'Reilly
O'Reilly Family Crest

Hardiman states that 'John O'Reilly, the Active' was one of the airs composed by Carolan for members of 'the great Cavan family' of O'Reilly. Bunting, who is the sole source, does not attribute this air to Carolan, and there is something of a folk ring about it. In all circumstances, O'Sullivan, decided to include it, marking it as doubtful. ...O'Sullivan 2001 1 vol. edition p. 274
