Hi ev´rybody!Since I joined a band called "Balleyhooley" I´d like to establish the song " The Humours of the king of Balleyhooley " as a signature tune.I know it from the singing of Andy Irvine and Patrick Street and have 98% of the words,but like to be sure.Where could I get the lyrics?Thanx in advance.

Yep! It's in the Digital Tradition - just search on Ballyhooley. Note spelling.

2211 BLLYHOOL THE KING OF BALLYHOOLEY

it's still one of the 'missing tunes' - can anyone post, scan or otherwise transmit the music notation?

Not the jig Ballyhooley, incidentally. The tune used for The King of Ballyhooley is essentially the same as Lurgan Town in the DT.
