Táim In Arrears

From the album ‘Lá ag Ól Uisce’, by Tomás Ó Gealbháin, Caoimhín Ó Fearghail & Seán Ó Fearghail.

The sleeve notes say that this tune "is a version of the song ‘Táim in Arrears’ which Ciarán Ó Gealbháin brought to my attention. It is to be found in the old song-book ‘Amhrán na nGleann’, edited by Finghin na Leamhna in 1939".

Here is a setting in G

I learned this from Tim Collins in a workshop in Florida around 2008.

Molly Rua?

Sure seems to be the tune I’ve learned as Molly Rua or Red Molly
