"The Clare Lancers" tracks are from the DVD/cassette series:
"The Magic of Irish Set Dancing - And Its Music, Volume 9" - tracks 1 - 5
This set of nine instructional DVDs were first released as:
"Come Dance With Me In Ireland - Volumes 1 - 9"

NOT DVDs! ~ sadly 🙁

As far as I’m aware these were only ever released as VHS video cassettes, and the music as cassette tapes, , except for some extracts on the four "The Set" CDs.

CDs: The Set - One / Two / Three: Music for ~ Sets

Sadly these three recordings, with booklets that give the dance description for each set, lack tune lists. I had plans to remedy that with close listening, along with at least half a dozen other recordings like this, but I haven’t yet - numerous distractions good & bad, including currently being computerless… 🙁 I accept some of the fault, in part procrastinating over building a new PC…
