Amhrán an Tae / Denis Murphy’s (jigs)

The first one is Amhrán an Tae (The Tea Song) and I've called the second one "Denis Murphy's".  Considering the number of tunes the last Mr. Murphy knew, this title is usually a safe bet when you don't know the actual name.

    The first one is commonly known as The Cuil Aodha (or Coolea). The first part is the air of a comic song collected in the Cuil Aodha area, called The Mother in Law (forgive me for not having the name in Irish). The song was recorded in the ’70s by dublin group Ceoltoirí Laigheann, and the 2nd part was added by them as an instrumental interlude.

    …It would be interesting to know whether “Amhrán an Tae” is another name for the same song or a different set of words to the same tune.
