BÍMÍD AG ÓL . AKA and see "Bemthe Goal," "Humours of Panteen/Parteen/Purteen," "Jackson's Humours of Panteen," "Whish Cat from under the Table," "Huish the Cat," "Whip the Cat From Under the Table," "Drive the Cat from Under the Table," "Dance Light for My Heart Lies Under Your Feet," "Peas on the Hearth." Irish, Double Jig. C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Breathnach (1976) finds the tune under the title "Bemthe Goal" from the same district as his County Limerik source, McEnery. As "Jackson's Humours of Panteen" it appears in Jackson's Celebrated Irish Tunes (Dublin, 1780, pg. 3), and as "Peas on the Hob" it is given in Stanford/Petrie (1905, No. 1356). Both Bunting and O'Neill print it as "Huish the Cat." Breathnach also finds the first part to be similar to that of Joyce's "Foxy Mary (1)" (1909, p. 114), and says it may be related to "Bímíd ag Ól (2)" in CRE I. See also note for Let Us Be Drinking.
