Tara Diamond and John Flynn Music on the Brain 2016 tune names

There are some nice tunes in the following three videos, but I can’t get tunepal to work anymore and can only identify two of them. Help would be appreciated:

(1) Tara and John: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMmoXjhkoP8

Memories of Ballymote + Gurteen Cross

(2) Tara and John: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvKozydVqro

? + ?

(3) Tara alone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bl32aoKhPww

(Music on the Brain says: ‘Set de highlands par Tara’)

Thanks!

Second tune track 3 is another Donegal highland. Here’s one take on it:

Many thanks to both of you! An Chúilfhionn is a wierd tune. Gian Marco attempted to make sense of it by changing metre every few measures. Here is another attempt, not necessarily any better, which locates the irregularity in the endings:
X:1
T:An Chúilfhionn
Z:cac
S:Tara Diamond & John Flynn, YT
C:March (?)
L:1/8
M: 2/4
K:G

Not the first time I’ve wished we could edit postings to correct mistakes. In this case, the first and second endings are not needed at all. It’s a nice tune and the extra (or missing) beat isn’t a problem at all.
