Just a little nitpick: the first tune of the second track is Cuilin Uí Caoimh, not the Humours of Glin

Gorgeous CD

Paul de Grae just informed me there is indeed a variant of the Humours of Glyn that I overlooked when I made my comment which is the ancestor of the Cullen jig or Chuillin uí Caoimh.

Ah well.

Track 3 Tune 1

Track 3 Tune 1 was, named as "Belle of the Ball" on the CD sleeve, so, not surprisingly, it was linking here to "Belle of the Ball", but that is a different tune. Now linked to Sean Hayes’, barndance, the right tune for this recording. As the notes inside the sleeve of the CD say, the Diamonds got this from Charlie Harris, whose info was that Sean Hayes led a music hall band in the USA in the 1920s.
Lots more words on this tune, and the dance, at
