CORNER HOUSE [1], THE (An Teach ar an gCoirnéal). Irish, Reel. A Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB (Breathnach): AABB' (Mulvihill): AA'BB' (Harker/Rafferty). Columbia County, New York, flute player Mike McHale (originally from County Roscommon) says the tune was derived from the march "Battle of Aughrim (1) (The)" and came into circulation in the 1950's. The composition has sometimes been credited to east Clare fiddler Martin "Junior" Crehan (1908-1998). See also the related "Down the Broom," "Lamb on the Lawn" and "Trip to Birmingham."
