Carolan's Ramble to Cashel

There are a score of places called Cashel in Ireland, including one in County Roscommon, which is perhaps the one designated in the title of this tune. The original of this song is in 6/8 time and this has been altered to 3/4 by doubling the value of each note and doubling the number of bars. There is no indication of origin, but another copy similar to ours is stated to be from O'Daly's MS. .... Donal Joseph O'Sullivan.
