16AIRS and SONGS14Concerning the disputed claims to priority of the above, and Limericks Lamentation; perhaps no bet-ter authority can be adduced than Alfred Moffat, author of Tie Jfinstrelsy of Scotland; and The Minstrelsy ofIreland. In a footnote page 300 of the latter work we read: Thomas Duffets song Since Coelias my foepublished in that authors New Poems London 1676, is marked, Song to the Irish Tune; there is no musicin this work, but in the Lovers Opera 1730, we find the air designated Since Coelias my foe to be the tuneclaimed by the Irish as Limericks Lament, and by the Scotch as Lochaber no more . We may thereforefairly presume that as far back as 1676. that is just fifty years prior to the appearance of Ramsay!g TeaTable Jfiscellany vol.11, in which Lochaber was first printed, the air was known as an Irish tune.The air or melody published with Ramsays song in Thomsons 0rphev s Caledonii g London, l733,varjes con.i4erab1y both in composition and number of bars, from the setting herewith pr6sented.LIMERICKS LAMIENPAPION (Conci.)Lochaber No MoreFarewell to LoeJia}j Farewell to My JeanA da fe Noderago - Ifuse Lo iJo 1785
