    I was flipping through my copy of “Carolan: The Life, Times and Music of an Irish Harper,” which is a pretty comprehensive book on Carolan and his work. ( https://www.amazon.com/Carolan-Times-Music-Irish-Harper/dp/1900428717). The book contains the melody for Carolan’s tunes, but there was one page in the book with a picture for a full score for the tune “Mr Connor,” and the picture was titled “Page from the book of Carolan’s tunes published in his lifetime.” I imagine that would resemble how LH accompaniments were like for his tunes back in Carolan’s days.
