The original source of Rice's arrangements is unknown, so the tagging is based on the fact that most folk songs were originally vocal without necessarily having an accompaniment. According to the Wikipedia page, "The air is reputed to have been played as a marching tune by the pipers of Fiach MacHugh in 1580. The words were written by Patrick Joseph McCall (1861–1919) and appear in his Songs of Erinn (1899) under the title "Marching Song of Feagh MacHugh"."
It is unknown whether McCall intended there to be a pipe accompaniment or not.
