HUMORS OF MIL(L)TOWN [1]. AKA - "Humours of Milltown Malbay (The)." AKA and see "Blooming Meadows (1)," "Chasing the Hare Down the Hill," "Cover the Buckle," "Down the Hill," "Down with the Tithes (1)," "Hag and Her Praskeen," "Mountain Heather," "Silver Tip (1) (The)." Irish, Jig (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABC. The tune was entered into vol. 2 (p. 161)[1] of the large mid-19th century music manuscript collection of County Cork cleric and uilleann piper Canon wikipedia:James_Goodman_(musicologist). Goodman researchers Hugh and Lisa Sheilds record that Goodman obtained the tune from a manuscript provided by Dublin bookseller John O'Daly[2]. Goodman's title, "The Humours of Milltown Malbay," makes it clear that 'Milltown' refers to the west County Clare village of Milltown Malbay [3], home to the Willie Clancy Summer School and Festival, and George Petrie also notes "A Clare Jig". Stanford's note with Petrie's "Humours of Milltown" reads: "Petrie gives this as the same as 'Chasing the hare down the hill'."
