From the recording Carolan's Farewell to Music

This was his last tune, written two days before he passed into the West. The people he had known, and the adventures of over forty years as a traveling bard - he got it all in there. I keep that in mind when I play it, in an effort to repay some of that debt.
Go raibh maith agat, Turlough. Slán go fóill.
