MacDermott Family Crest

The MacDermott Roe family of Alderford were Carolan's principal patrons and oldest friends. The subject of this air is either the head of the family when Carolan first came to Alderford, the date of whose death is unknown, or his eldest son, who died on the 21st June, 1752. If the quatrain below belongs to this air then the subject is the latter.
