Tune of the Day: The Cottage in the Grove

Traditional Irish reel

One of the earliest appearances of this reel is in the music manuscript collection of County Cork cleric and uilleann piper James Goodman, who obtained the tune from the music manuscripts of 19th-century bookseller John O'Daly. The same melody also appeared, with minor differences, in the Rice-Walsh manuscript.
