The two songs are Seoladh na nGamhna - which in English means "Herding the Calves" - a young girl goes out to the woods to bring the calves home and meets a young man and the calves go home alone!!!
The second, the faster one is Sí do Mhamo í - a bit of a nonsense work song from the West of Ireland - it means She's the Granny - and is sometimes called Cailleach an Airgid - the hag with the money - what a title!! It's about a wedding - someone gets married to the old woman with the money!! Enough said :)
That's Tom on the left.
Winter seems to have descended really suddenly around here - the nights have drawn in without noticing the shortening. Haven't brilliant sunshine until just a few days ago will be a huge help for getting through the Winter to come. I don't know about you, but I feel so much better - my bones still feel warm :)
How's Autumn coming in for you? Are you well settled into a routine?
