Paddy Plastique Meaning of 'The Coolin' (72* d) RE: Meaning of 'The Coolin' 12 Mar 02


Masato, are you distantly related to Lafcadio Hearn, by any chance, that Greco-Irish-American who loved Japan ?
A recent Occitan 'Summer School' around here (SW France) had a Japanese participant...amazing
Mickey191, 'Ard Mhacha' is the Irish for the county of Armagh - maybe AM himself will give
the literal meaning - or any secret meaning he might have himself.
Regarding 'An Chuilfionn' (sic), I have a bit of a scam tape of Behan at home, recorded
at a sitting, I think. He tells anecdotes and attempts to sing a few songs - though he never completes any.
He does 'An Chuilfionn' in a fragmentary fashion - bluffing half of the words - even to my untrained ear.
Maybe I should transcribe his wee preamble - as he talks of the 'young girl'/'hairstyle' sense..some day
Even with a drunken, spoofing Behan, the beauty of it shines through, though.
