Thanks. Also a reminder why I need to start learning Gaelic.

I think the tunes are Eimhin's and Cahir's Kitchen from the playing of Paddy Keenan on the Long Grazing Acre recording.
I've been wrong before, however.

Thanks, sounds right to me.

Speaking of Keenan though, anyone know what the first tune he is playing here is?

Hi, can someone identify the ridiculous fast tune played at the start of this teaser?

I'd give it a go, but I have no idea how to download the tune from that website. Nothing seems to work. Anywhere else you can put it?

The tune sounds like Julia Delaney to me.

I tried it again this morning, and it downloaded fine. Dunno what was wrong last night,

Yes, it's Julia Delaney, but played wrong. Sounds like someone who once heard a trad musician playing it and has misremembered it. The second part in particular is missing some of the tune, ending up with a very repetitive version as a result.

Julia Delaney as most people know it these days was one of Tommy Potts' re-imaginings of existing tunes. The 'original' as it appears in O'Neill's collection is a pretty straightforward reel in D, still played today under various names. Not sure what a 'proper' version would be. The Bothy Band one is the standard version for most people I suppose.

I was given a lovely version of the tune by Martin Rochford, perhaps a remnant of Potts' visits to East Clare. It is clearly influenced by Potts' version but it has a different turn to it that makes it an attractive alternative.
