Subject: RE: I'm not anti Irish.. honest
Marc You are right about the Clancy Bros being great, although since two of the original group have passed away, However , I do not believe that Liam Clancy would ever, of his own volition, claim any song to be of Irish origin if it were not so. Liam is in fact quite a folklorist an I have always heard him give whatever credit a song's author or composer was deserved.
