Traditional Irish Influence On Tool’s Wings For Marie?

I don’t know if anyone else has thought about it when they were listening to Tool’s 10,000 days Wing For Marie.

It is an amazing song, and when I listen to it, it reminds me of a lot of traditional Irish music that my friends listen to ( not the Whiskey in the Jar-type songs, but more melodic and emotional )

When you hear this, and then listen to this:

There isn’t much of a similarity, but the arrangements ( especially the vocal arrangements )  in the two songs are directed more to traditional Irish/Gaelic folk music than any other current/past genre ( other than the heaviness of the rock guitar ).

Can anyone say they have/have not though of this? Am I wrong? Do I have something?
