In CLARE, the trad scene is strong, elsewhere it is not as strong, Jim B, I know what you are saying and I agree it is a double edged sword, but credit has to be given where it is due, and CCE has played a part in promoting trad music , at the least just the presence of the national fleadh, of course much money has been wasted and their competition system in my opinion is unhealthy and steers the music in a certain musical direction to the detriment of regional styles, but even if one dislikes what they are trying to do it is only fair to give them some credit.JimCarroll imo sees things in black and white, it aint like that, if oneloks at the situation in an adult and fair way CCE HAS PLAYED A PART IN PROMOTING TRAD MUSIC , YOU MAY NOT LIKE THE WAY IT DOES IT BIT IT DOES IT NEVERTHELESS
