Ruaidri Dall Ó Catháin (fl. late 16th/early 17th century) was an Irish harper and composer. As with many medieval and early modern Irish musicians, Ruaidri was blind (hence his nickname, Ruaidri "Dall", blind Ruaidri). Captain Francis O'Neill exhibits some uncertainty concerning his lifetime, stating he was born in 1646 but died in 1653. All that can be said is that he was alive during the first half of the 17th century.

"Give Me Your Hand" (Tabhair dom do Lámh in Irish) is a tune from the early 17th century by Ruaidri Dáll Ó Catháin (c.1570-c.1650), perhaps in honour of a lady. It is one of the most widely recorded pieces of Irish and Scottish traditional music. This tune, revived by Seán Ó Riada, was originally a composition of the blind Derry harpist Ruaidri Dáll Ó Catháin. He wrote it while in Scotland, where he had a disagreement with a Lady Eglington. He composed the tune for her when she apologized. The tune is sometimes claimed to be written by the famous harpist [O'Carolan], who lived some years later. However there is no reference in the Bunting collection of O Carolan’s music. Nor should Ruaidhrí 'Dall' Ó Catháin be confused with another blind poet at around the same time, Rory 'Dall' Morrison.

I created this arrangement for Celtic or Concert (Pedal) Harp.
