The title "The Merry Witch" comes from the Pierce Ferriter
poem written in 1640
In Praise of the Harp
The key of music and its gate,
the wealth and abode of poetry!
The skillful neat Irish woman,
the richly festive moaner.
Children in dire sickness, men in deep wounds,
sleep at the sounds of its crimson board;
the merry witch has chased all sorrow,
the festive home of music and delight.
