"The Humours of Ballinamult"

I’m submitting this with the hopes that other versions of it will arrive, and anything else relevant. It’s also being submitted as it came up in discussion in comparison with the following recent submission:

"Bill The Weaver’s Jig"

I’ve given my take on it, though I did look for a recording to transcribe from. I’ll also add an earlier and different transcription for comparison. (Here’s hoping this time this works, my third attempt to add comment. This time I’ll copy it first.)
