Wearied Lad

This interesting slide appears in The Petrie Collection of Irish Music, part II, ed. Charles Villiers Stanford (1905), p. 137, no. 541 as “The wearied lad. Set by Lord Rosmore from P. Coneely 1843”. Patrick Coneely was a famous Galway piper.
The transcription is due to AK/Fiddler’s Companion that says “There may be some relation to the “Gold Ring” family of tunes”. This tune is also know as "Limerick Tinker", "Bouchalaun Buie", "Yellow Ragweed" .
