Paddy Plastique Origin: Kerry Recruit (nonsense chorus) (17) RE: BS: Kerry Recruit Chorus 01 Mar 02

Nope, Philippa, yer diacriticals are oriental all over.
Lemme see 'An Spailpín Fánach', nach ea ?
Is it just because I've heard a Seamus Ennis (sung) version or does anyone else think the
'nonsense' bits sound a bit like pipes. I don't know if there were even separate Irish
regiments at the time of the Crimean War or whether the practice of playing the pipes
in front of those about to become cannon fodder had established itself at the time
