Songbook containing original poems by various authors from the Irish midlands [NLI]

Early 19th century songbook containing apparently original poems attributed to Sally Hennessy and Joseph Tuite of Leighlinbridge, Thomas Cahill of Kilbeggan, Patrick Treacy "at Mr. Willis's School, Portarlington" and Henry Odlum of Ballymooney, Philipstown. Many of the poems are entitled "Rebus" (a king of riddle) or "Enigma", and some are addressed to Eliza Maguire of Peter Street, Dublin. The first 65 pages are original poems, and the remainder are collected songs by various authors, all written in the same hand. A later hand adds further, unoriginal verse and genealogical notes on the Donohoe family.
