Humours of Ballyconnell D K2v4p19 Irish. According to The Boys of the Lough, "The Humours of Ballyconnell is the local Fermanagh name for a reel more generally known as Captain Rock".
PV: It's certainly an old tune...I've found [it] in print [in] Daniel Wright's 'Aria di Camera' (1927), where it is entitled Role the Rumple Sawny, apparently meaning Roll your Rump, Sandy. The first instance I know of for the "Ballyconnell" title is on the 78 recording by Michael Coleman and Tom Morrison, where it's spelled Humors of Bally Connoll. On this 1925 recording, the musicians follow it with Captain Rock, better known today as The Old Bush.
AK: Humours of Ballyconnell is itself called Captain Rock in Flaherty's collection. Is there a confusion of titles stemming from the Coleman recording?
