Thread Name: I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen
Subject: RE: I'll take you home again Kathleen
Dont get too ratty Orac, its bad for the blood pressure. I think of "I'll take you home again, Kathleen" as Irish: its only a shorthand way of saying "popular with the Irish, written for the Irish market"....it's a reasonable thing to say. Not strictly accurate maybe, but it all depends what you mean by Irish, context is everything. Now, calling "Any old iron" Irish was another thing altogether!!!
