HUMOURS OF LISTOWEL [2]. AKA and see "Ken Fahey's." Irish, Jig. A Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The earliest appearance of the tune in print is in Church of Ireland cleric James Goodman's mid-19th century music manuscripts. Goodman (1828-1896) was an uilleann piper, and an Irish speaker who collected locally in County Cork and elsewhere in Munster. He also obtained tunes from manuscripts and printed collections. The melody appears in modern time in Bulmer & Sharpley's Music from Ireland (vol. 4, 1976) sourced to flute player Ken Fahey, by whose name they call it.
