The polka Glen Cottage is sometimes called “As I Went Out Upon the Ice.” In Irish the title is Teachín an Ghleanna, known variously in English as “Glen Cottage,” “Glin Cottage,” “The Green Cottage #2” and various other permutations, with settings in both Edor and Ador. There are, in fact, a whole group of polkas called by one of the names listed above, such as “The Glen Cottage Polkas,” and each given a number, but we are here just learning one of them. It’s a start, anyway. Peter Browne writes that this tune is also known as “Johnny O’Leary’s” (a student of Pádraig O’Keeffe). Sometimes, when this tune is in Ador it will be called “The Tralee Gaol” (the Tra-Lee Jail). I’m guessing there’s an interesting story behind the latter title, but haven’t heard it yet.
