The Chieftains 9: Boil the Breakfast Early is an Irish folk album by The Chieftains. This album featured a big change in The Chieftains sound, because two of the founding members, Seán Potts and Michael Tubridy, had left the group. The replacement for Tubridy was Matt Molloy, who had just been a member for both The Bothy Band and Planxty.

This album also featured a song where Kevin Conneff for the first time sings a cappella. Jolyon Jackson also played cello on three tracks.[2][3]
