Subject: RE: Where Have all the Folkies Gone
The CCE spends what money they get funding their own image and weird take on Irish music
They have driven more young people away from Irish music than they have caught their interest with their competition ethos (we've covered this far too many times to make it an issue here Dick)
Their seizure of Clontarf branch's new premises says enough about what they are about than anything else

EFDSS seem to have found the direction they wish to taake but it has little to do with folk music
