Kenny, have a look here: https://thesession.org/tunes/1272

The following are all given as alternate titles:
Cottage Grove
The Cottage Grove
Cottage Groves
The Cottage Groves

Re: Can anyone put a name to these reels

How do you know that the person who put those titles in knew anything at all about Irish music ? "The College Groves" - the tune played here, [ albeit in a slightly different setting ], by Kevin Burke was published in O’Neill’s over a hundred years ago.
What percentage - if any - of the recordings listed give the title as the "Cottage Groves", do you think ?

Kevin Burke’s DVD by homespun, Kevin calls the tune " the Cottage Groves " Maybe the editor misunderstood Kevin’s pronouncation , but it sounds like he is saying "Cottage"
On a side note my copy of O’Neill’s has neither titles? My edition was arranged by James O’Neill and published by Daniel. Collins.
