Humours Of Ballinafauna

I’ve heard the Humours of Ballinafauna played by the Cottars after Miss Casey’s Jig on their album, Forerunner.

You can hear that set on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqaWJpI7_Vo


There are various tune variations on Tune Archive, https://tunearch.org/wiki/Annotation:Humors_of_Ballinafauna_(The)

Various alternate tune names are "Sugrad Baile-na-Fanad", "Sugra Beul-Ata-na-Fanad", "Jackson’s Coggie" (also spelled "Jackson’s Coge"), "Jackson’s Coggie in the Morning", and especially "Humors of Mullin-a-fauna", as it was titled in what might be the oldest archives.

Speaking of archives, here are some of the old sources:
