Subject: RE: Arthur McBride- What's the background?
Hello All, According to Frank McGrath "such language was not of the people", Well Frank and Malcolm, look up "The Blarismoor Tragedy",. YoU will find it on the list of songs on this site. The words are by a hedge school poet James Garland of Lurgan Co Armagh. James also wrote songs on "The Market Cross of Armagh", "Dobbins flowery vale" etc. And come back to me and tell me the dialect used in this song "is of the people". And Malcolm more power to you I appreciate your contribution and all the rest of the helpful people on this site. Slan agus Beannacht Ard Mhacha.
