Subject: RE: Fields of Athenry
Well, after all these good words about TFOA, I must say that it is probably the best way for a punter in Ireland to make themselves seriously unpopular at a session. "Play us the Fields Of Athenry" is just about guaranteed to have you shown the door. Nice as the tune may be, I honestly believe it is played out for the time being. It'll come round again sometime. Maybe a bit like Blowin' in The Wind - it's time for it to come out of the closet again!!
