HUMOURS OF STRAND ROAD, THE. AKA - "Humours of Strandroad." Irish, Jig (6/8 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. A version of this tune appears in Brendan Breathnach's Ceol Rince na hÉireann IV (1996), as an untitled jig (No. 17) from the biography:Stephen Grier collection (Grier was a piper and fiddler from Farnaught, County Leitrim, who compiled his music manuscript collection in the early 1880's). A version of the jig also was entered into the large mid-19th century music manuscript collection of Canon wikipedia:James_Goodman_(musicologist) (County Cork). Some similarity in parts to "Top of Cork Road (The)" or "Father O'Flynn."

There are several 'Strand Roads' in Ireland.
