When one thinks of folk music, lilting jigs, reels and hornpipes, those originating in Ireland come immediately to mind. Capt Francis O'Neill, the author of this book, has a fascinating hobby in that he collected Irish Folk Music. During his reasearches he compiled a selection of the songs and music many of which had almost faded into oblivion and been forgotten, O'Neill gathered them together and discovered theit history, how they originated and where they were first heard. Capt Francis O'Neill was born at Tralibane, Bantry, Co. Cork in August 1849 and he attended the national school at Bantry. At fifteen he became a teacher he later emigrated to America where he joined the police in Chicago where in 1901 he became superintendent of police ( the equivalent of our chief of police) He retired in 1905 to relax and work on the preservation of Irish music. Capt. O' Neill died on January 26, 1936. A rare chance to obtain this most sought after book. Seller Inventory # 005123
