The tune is usually known nowadays as "Humors of Glendart." 19th century County Cork cleric and uilleann piper James Goodman entered the tune in his large music manuscript collection as "Housemaid (1) (The)." Donegal fiddler Hugh Gillespie (1906-1986) recorded the tune in the 78 RPM era under the title of "Finley's." Compare also with Goodman's "North Road to Tralee (The)."
