HUMOURS OF SIX MILE BRIDGE, THE. AKA and see Irish, Reel (whole time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Sixmilebridge  (Droichead Abhann Uí gCearnaigh) is a place-name in County Clare, a small town between Ennis and Limerick city. Kennedy gives alternate titles as "Banks of the Ilen (The)" and "Six Mile Bridge," although those tunes appear to me to be distanced variants. The reel is contained in vol. 2 (p. 151) of the large mid-19th century music manuscript collection of County Cork cleric and uilleann piper James Goodman, who had copied it from the music manuscripts of 19th century Dublin bookseller John O'Daly, according to researchers Hugh and Lisa Shields. Collector P.W. Joyce also had access to O'Daly's mss.
