Marbhna na Cléire - Lament of the Clergy

This tune is not attributed to Carolan, but there are other tunes in the same manuscript which are undoubtedly by him and which are not so ascribed. It seems to resemble in style some of Carolan's slow tunes, and on these somewhat slender grounds O'Sullivan includes it in his edition.
