There was really a harper in Ireland called Maire Dhall (Blind Mary) who is known to have taught harp to friends of Turlough O'Carolan (1670 - 1738), so it's assumed he knew her, too. The melody is rather dramatic and you get a feeling of respect for this woman, who, like O'Carolan, must have traveled, played harp, and taught for a living.

Even though I have just discovered this tune today, I still find myself surprised that I am the first to comment on your delightful arrangement and performance here. I am having lots of fun picking around and about your tabs and felt I would be remiss if I didn't at least say thanks. You are a true inspiration.

Thanks, Scott. Compliments are like giving a little bouquet. Very appreciated. O’Carolan compositions are such a unique joy. :)
