Tune of the Day: The Humors of Ballycastle

Traditional Irish jig

The earliest known appearance of this jig is in Francis O'Neill's celebrated collection Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1903.

There are two places named Ballycastle in Ireland: one is a small town in County Antrim (Northern Ireland), the other a village in County Mayo. It is uncertain which one the title refers to.
