Subject: RE: Irish speakers' help, please
Mr. Red, I don't know where your confusion comes from.
Horse's branle , from Orchesographie, France, 1589.
Nonesuch, from Playford's Dancing Master, England, 1651.
They are clearly not the same. Horse's branle is not really Nonesuch. Different sources, different countries, different dances, different tunes, different era.
This thread is about neither of them.
