Orac I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen (33) RE: I'll take you home again Kathleen 26 Jun 02

I'm sorry Greg... didn't see the grin. To answer your question I was born in Staffs but have lived in Derbyshire since 1973. As for your remark about the Irish acquiring rights to everything, I completely agree. I have started threads in the past on this very subject. I'm brassed off with every song or tune that was ever written being claimed as trad Irish. How often have you seen things like "Fiddlers Green" in books of "Irish Folk Songs". Not to mention "Danny Boy" of course which was written in 1911 by an Englishman with Scotland as the location and "40 shades of green" written by an American ex-con. If I was to write a song about America it wouldn't make it an American song... Better go now before I get too irritated.
