Riocard Bairead 1714-1819??

After performing this great song last night, glancing at my song notes - that the writer's life seemed an unusually long one, given the average lifespan in the 18th - 19th centuries.

According to the dates given here, 1714-1819, would make him 105 years old when he died.

Further research has revealed this Riocard Bairéad & also the answer to another query of how the name would be pronounced.
