Joe Cooley’s Delight

This one follows the Morning Lark as played by Noel Hill and Tony McMahon. At our session we always add on Tom Billy’s at the end which makes for a nice threesome.

Re: Joe Cooley’s Delight

Move this down to G and it seems to be the same tune as the Seamus Cooley’s that Martin Hayes plays on Under the Moon.

Cooleys reel

this tune in the blue cd is a reel played with drowsey maggie,however here it is a jig is there a mistake some where…

Not a mistake

No, it is not a mistake. Cooley’s Reel (super-common Em tune) is a DIFFERENT TUNE than Cooley’s Jig (slightly less-common D tune).

Leg of the Duck

This seems to be known as Leg of the Duck around Carlow.
