****************************************
I played this tune on a Hammered Dulcimer, an instrument which has a long & interesting history in Co. Antrim:

The County Antrim Dulcimer: http://countyantrimdulcimer.blogspot....

**********************************************
The tune Limerick's Lamentation or the Lament for Limerick has been dated by Flood to the year 1691. However, the melody first appears in Neales' Collection of the 'Most Celebrated Irish Tunes' (Dublin, 1726), and was printed by Thompson in his Hibernian Muse of 1786.
It also appears in the Bunting Collection of Irish music (1840).
