    This is a song by Blaggards called, "Foggy Dew." I used to go and see these guys a lot in Austin.

    Have you listened to the "Drop Kick Murphys?" A bit heavier but still very Irish.

    You bring back memories. I used to go and see the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem in New York, including one magical New Year’s Eve at Birdland (!) where the lineup included Herbie Mann, Miriam Makeba, and the Clancy Brothers!
    “Comin’ Home Baby”, South African click songs, and “Finnegan’s Wake“ all in one night!

    I haven't heard of them but I'll check them out.

    I'm listening to "Smash S*%# Up" right now ... I like them!

    I don't know if people would make that connection; I wouldn't. I have some Irish ancestry and like this type music, but what happened for years there is mystifying to me what all the violence was for, I don't remember ever hearing all that much about it over the years.

    Sorry, there weepete, I meant nothing by it. How can I know whether a song is going to hit a nerve with someone? I suppose if I were closer to the ordeal I might've been sorely affected by the lyrics as well but as is, I'm just a guy that's far removed from it. I only see the lyrics as a tale of something that happened long ago between two kings and the peoples of two countries and a desire by a few people present day still hanging on to the dream of having Ireland returned to it's former glory. I won't go into the politics of it, that could start a whole new war .... and I don't want to fight with anyone. I've already had one silly fight recently and that's enough.
