FANNY POWER ("Fanny Poer" or "Fannuidh Power"). AKA and see "Fanny Poer," "Madame Trench," "Mrs. Power/Poer," "Mrs. Trench (of Garbally)," "Planxty Fanny Power." Irish, Air or Planxty (6/8 or 3/4 time). G Major (Complete Collection, O Canainn, O'Neill, Sullivan): A Major (O'Sullivan/Bunting). Standard. AABB. Composed before 1728 by blind Irish harper Turlough O'Carolan (1670-1738) in praise of the daughter and heiress of patrons David and Elizabeth Power of Coorheen, Loughrea, Co. Galway. O'Carolan called her "the Swan of the Shore" from the fact that her father's residence was situated on the edge of Lough Riadh (Rea). When Fanny married in March, 1732, one Richard Trench of Garbally she became the "Mrs. Trench (of Garbally)" or "Madame Trench" by which title the air sometimes appears. She was long-lived and provident, surviving to 1793, the mother of a future Lady (Clancarty), and Baron, Viscount and Earl (William Power Keating Trench, born in 1741 and created Baron Kilconnel in 1797) {Flood, 1906; O'Sullivan, 1983}. John McCutcheon (1981) states the tune was very popular in its day, and was written in the Italian Baroque style. Source for notated version: Bunting collected the tune either from Charles Byrne or Arthur O'Neill, both harpers of the late 18th century and whom he credits singley and respectively in his MS and the index to his 1840 collection.
