Bunting, however, includes "Port Gordon" % among the compositions of Rory Dall O'Cahan, a famous % harper of the Western Highlands. The fact is that Carolan % exercised his talents in retouching his predecessor's % composition according to his own personal fancy. % The setting which follows, taken from O'Neill's Music of % Ireland was found among Sergt.
