GUEST,Okiemockbird Ancient Celtic Tunes (21) RE: Ancient Celtic Tunes 15 May 00

David Byers' Homepage has some historical information.

There was a collection of Irish tunes published in 1724, the Neal Collection. I don't know if the melodies have been dated.

Some of the melodies in the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book are called "Irish", e.g. "The Irish Ho-Hoane". Of course, this doesn't mean they truly were Irish in origin.
