Thread Name: I'm not anti Irish.. honest
Subject: RE: I'm not anti Irish.. honest
Commercialism is at fault, however, if I looked at the title of the book" Irish Songs" and then scanned the contents and found "Non-Irish" songs I would probably do one of two things. 1 - Buy the book and enjoy it or 2 - not buy the book. Commercialism affects everybody and everything. How many times have you noticed the title of a song being changed on a record or c.d. sleeve for example only to find that you already have the song on another C.D. under a different name. It's all geared to get you to buy the product.

BTW john, I suppose soccer is still an English game, just because it originated there ?. Tell that to the Brazilians, Italians and French. Is basketball a Canadian game because it was invented by a canadian? or an american game because it was invented by a canadian living in america?. Parts of this thread reeks of jealousy and a little bit of anti-irish feelings despite your disclaimer in the original posting.
