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

There are various tune variations on Tune Archive,

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:
