Caislean Ui Neill

This lovely lament is from the Cassidys’ (Na Casaidigh) self-titled record (2001) featuring their sister on vocals and harp. Though the lyrics are one of Ireland’s oldest love songs (the girl laments that her love has gone with another to the castle of the O’Neills), I have not found this tune anywhere else.
