Humors Of Tralee

Recorded from a session. If my memory serves it was played by the Friel Sisters. Unsure where they have it from but I got the name from a version of the tune in the Goodman collection. As mentioned in a discussion yesterday http://thesession.org/discussions/34441#comment731761 it may be related to "This is my Love, do you like her"

The Goodman collection version

Here is the Goodman version (thanks to The Traditional Tune Archive):
