Maurice O'Connor was the head of the O'Connors of Offaly. Although heir to the title, he was penniless and left Ireland in about 1700 to amass a great fortune in England. Carolan composed three pieces in honour of him; this is the third air.

This tune is part of my Carolan Collection of tunes; for others, check out the Composers Collection Index.
