A version of the first one is called "The Pride of Cluinte" in Bernie
Flaherty's "Trip to Sligo." I've also seen it as "Fred Finn's." It seems to
be a variant of "The Navvy on the Line," recorded by the Bothy Band in 1975.
The second tune is the classic "Corney is Coming"--which I like to refer to
as "Waiting for Corney, the existential Irish reel"...
Mighty fiddle playing, thanks for giving me an excuse to listening to that
