Source: John McFadden in O’Neill’s Music of Ireland1

DeGrae comments:

“Not found in any of the older collections in the Bibliography, and thus possibly composed by McFadden […]. Delaney’s Reel (OIM 301) is a later, slightly different setting, perhaps reflecting McFadden’s penchant for variation.”2

O’Neill’s account of McFadden from Irish Minstrels and Musicians can be found here.
