Humours of Lissadell (The)

I learned “The Humours of Lissadell” after a weekend trip to Inishbofin with Tom Delany, Caroline Keane and a few others in 2014, it was like the “tune of the weekend”. It is quite a common session tune and often followed by “The Queen of May”.

I couldn’t find this hornpipe in the book of Junior Crehan’s compositions, There is howver a reel called Crehan’s Banbhs in the book which shares a lot of similarities with this tune.

De’il Among The Tailors (The)

“The De’il Among The Tailors” is a setdance I learned from one of Doolin’s legends, concertina player Packie Russell.
