EAGAN'S. AKA and see "Humors of Castlefinn (The)." Irish, Reel. The tune by this title appears on Paddy Canny and P.J.Hayes' famous 1959 recording, on which, for some tracks, they were joined by fellow Tulla Ceili Band member Peadar O'Loughlin on flute, and Bridie Lafferty on piano. Canny and Hayes were two of the best known 20th century fiddle players from the East Clare tradition. "Paddy Miles' Fricassee" in Ryan's Mammoth Collection (1883) is generally similar (more so in the first strain) and may be cognate.
