Thread Name: I'm not anti Irish.. honest
Subject: RE: I'm not anti Irish.. honest
I wish I really did have too much time on my hands. My original posting came about because I've been asked to do an evening of Irish music on St Patrick's night at a local pub. So I've had to decide what to do on the night. I have many books of "Irish songs" like "100 Irish Ballads" by Soodlum .. but what I found when I went though them was that many were not Irish at all. Whilst most did state their origin it didn't excuse their being there in the first place.
In the end I guess I shall have to do all the Plastic Paddy crap that they expect in pubs.. and very little of the wonderful songs that the Irish really do have to offer.
