This traditional Irish Jig was originally attributed to Turlough O'Carolan. Scholars beieve that as it’s not in the ‘Book’ by O’Sullivan. In searching further, it was determined that it is actually from a song "Tho’ Leixlip is Proud", about Leixlip near Dublin having lovely woods etc . It seems that O’Neill may have seen Tho’ (Though) as Thos. short for Thomas and attributed it as another Carolan tune. Although a great tune, there were then many Baroque influenced tunes and songs from operas etc at the time from all over Britain and Ireland. Carolan was certainly open to all influences.

There is a song from the opera Poor Soldier that starts ‘Tho’ Leixlip is proud of it’s close shady bowers.’ It’s likely that this was read as "Thos." i.e. Thomas and as it sounded like a Baroque tune , attributed to Carolan. It’s not in O’Sullivan’s book of Carolan tunes and Bonnie Shaljean the harpist doesn’t know it as one of his. Leixlip is now a suburb of Dublin and the song sung by Pat, the Poor Soldier praises Norah his beloved.
The tune is similar to The Humours of Glynn or The Sligo Rambler and was widely played as a jig so may have been lifted from the tradition. Burns also used it for a song.

Although this work was originally written for Folk Instruments, I created this arrangement for Flute & Concert (Pedal) Harp.
