There is some argument as to the origin of the word ‘Planxty’ which was used for some tunes dedicated to his patrons by the blind Irish harper Turlough O’Carolan, (1670-1738).   An example is ‘Planxty Reilly’ written for John O’Reilly of County Meath.   Some historians think the word could mean ‘health’, in the sense of  “here’s a health to John O’Reilly”, but others suggest it is derived from the Irish word planncaim, which means ‘to strike’ (the strings of a harp).   Whatever the origin, most planxties are lively pieces in six-eight time, as is this one.
