GUEST,Anne Croucher Origins: Shoals of Herring (MacColl) (117* d) RE: Origins: Shoals of Herring (MacColl) 13 Aug 04

A lugger with an engine is still a sailing vessel with a lugs'l - you know what I ment.

I still think fishing lugger makes more sense.

Singing 'sailing lugger' is like saying 'car with wheels'.

I did hear that a month after Singing the Fishing was on the radio someone bought several rounds of porter in order to collect a really good song from some Irish chaps, only to find that he had been given 'shoals of herring' transmogrified into 'shores of Erin' for his trouble.
