Tiarna Gaillimhe - Lament for Lord Galway

Family Crest
Gallaway Family Crest

As to the title there can be no doubt that 'Gallaway'is a mistake for Galway. This tune is distinctively Irish in character. Though it is not ascribed to Carolan, its structure is almost identical with that of his Lament for Terrence MacDonough. The conclusion is that it is Carolan's tune. ...Dónal Ó Sullivan.
