The Humours of Tuaimgreine (hornpipe)

Here's a nice hornpipe from County Clare.  Some nice things do come from that county, so I'm told.

    I was looking for this tune what key is it in and what tempo is this in or are you just playing freestyle?

    Tune in A minor I think. Tempo is 4/4. First time round may seem a bit “free” as I split the phrases up a bit to help make them easier to learn.

    I don’t know whi wrote this. There’s a version if in in O’Neill’s “Dance Music of Ireland” called “Tomgraney Castle”. This was published in 1907 and it’s hard to know who wrote most of the tunes in it.
