Píobaire, An 8 3 7 20120622 7 IMCO A further early collection has been added to our Irish Music Collections Online (IMCO) website resource. This is John Clinton’s Gems of Ireland, 200 Airs Containing the most Popular of Moore's Melodies, all the National Airs, and the Celebrated Melodies of Carolan, Connolan &c., Collected from the most Authentic Sources. The title is a trifle misleading. There are in fact 201 tunes in the collection, the number 188 having been allocated to two different tunes. A PDF facsimile of the collection can be down- loaded from the Petrucci Music Library in New York. This copy is defective however, missing a single leaf, which has been supplied from the copy at the National Library of Ireland.
