It relates to the most beautiful andpathetic of the tales of the Red Branch era of Irish history and legend. Wewould appeal to our members acquainted with the Antrim glens and Scottishisles whether the air still survives in traditional song.Dr. James McDonnell, writing to Edward Bunting in 1839, shortly after the latterhad paid a visit to Belfast and returned to Dublin, says, I enclose two stripes ofpaper written in your hand which I found since you left here. They relate to theHighland blind womans song of Dardrae, which she sung so often to my dear friend,the old Marohioness of Londonderry. You took it down, and I beg the favour of youto write it over again, and return it to me, explaining the matter as a curiosity, andproving it to be the same with what you got at Murlogh. I dont think you laysufficient stress upon this curious coincidence.11 JI ,J J h i I IJ I Ifl I I- -I . - J * -I r1V
