Further review (thanks John M.) reveals that "Princess Royal" is indeed in
O'Sullivan, under the main title of "Miss MacDermott" (no. 87).
O'Sullivan's notes mention Wright and other contemporary printed sources.
He also writes that there is an English song called "The Princess Royal"
which has no connection with the Carolan tune. So that may be the English
"version" someone knew of.
