Humours of Castlefin (The)

I learned “The Humours of Castlefin” during the Russell Memorial Weekend 2013, from Terry Bingham. It is one of my favourite tunes and I associate with Noel Hill and Tony MacMahon, who recorded it on their album “I gCnoc Na Graí”. It is the very first tune of the album and they follow it with another one of my favourites, “The Templehouse”.
