Humours of Ballingarry (The)

“The Humours of Ballingarry” is a popular jig around Doolin. It is the last tune of a set that I learned from James Cullinan abd PJ Crotty’s album. The First two jigs of this set are “Happy to Meet and Sorry to Part” and “Dooney Rock“. Hugh & Colm Healy also recorded “The Humours of Ballingarry” on their CD “Macalla na hÓige”.
