This song was recorded sung by Terence O Reilly on the Suantrai album (John Canny(Box) Kevin Carey (Fiddle) & Terence O Reilly (Guitar/Vocals)) issued in late 2001.

The notes say taht the song was written for the high king of Ireland ! and that the Castle is in County Down. I doubt if either of these is said with any great authority to back it up.

By coincidence the Lonesome Robin song which is featured on another thread at the moment is also featured on this album. There are some lovely tunes on this CD also and very well played too.
