Paul de Grae Ryan's Mammoth Collection and the O'Neill Collections. "This is an examination of the possible influence of Ryan's Mammoth Collection, published in Boston in 1883, on Captain Francis O'Neill's two principal collections, Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1903, and The Dance Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1907."
David Moulton Index of Tune Titles in O'Neill's Music of Ireland and Dance Music of Ireland.
