Notes

In fact, I am told, Carolan most likely arranged, but did not compose, the tune. I also believe the Faeries involved have since gone to the negotiations table, and are now making a mint in the post-peace-process-tourist-trade. PS: Sometimes referred to as "she begs for more". but never by me, of course. Must be reference to Guiness...
