Antrim:<br /> <br /> The County Antrim Dulcimer: <a href="http://countyantrimdulcimer.blogspot.com/">http://countyantrimdulcimer.blogspot.com/</a><br /> <br /> **********************************<br /> The tune Limerick's Lamentation or the Lament for Limerick has been dated by Flood to the year 1691. However, the melody first appears in Neales' Collection of the 'Most Celebrated Irish Tunes' (Dublin, 1726), and was printed by Thompson in his Hibernian Muse of 1786.<br /> It also appears in the Bunting Collection of Irish music (1840).<br /> <br /> For more details on the history of this beautiful piece of music, please check out:<br /> <br /> LIMERICK'S LAMENTATION, The Fiddler's Companion<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.ceolas.org/cgi-bin/ht2/ht2-fc2/file=/tunes/fc2/fc.html?isindex=lim">http://www.ceolas.org/cgi-bin/ht2/ht2-fc2/file=/tunes/fc2/fc.html?isindex=lim</a>...<br /> <br /> Lochaber No More<br /> "There are versions of this tune called King James March to Ireland dating from the 17th century.<br /> It is known in Ireland as Limerick's Lament. It was the poet Allan Ramsay who in 1724 set the words Lochaber No More, about an enlisted Highlander's nostalgia."<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.nigelgatherer.com/tunes/whistle/whi2/locha.html">http://www.nigelgatherer.com/tunes/whistle/whi2/locha.html</a><br /> <br /> **********************************<br /> Carrickfergus Castle:<br /> <a href="http://www.ni-environment.gov.uk/carrick.htm">http://www.ni-environment.gov.uk/carrick.htm</a><br /> <br /> **********************************
