Thanks, kat. You are right, these ephemeral newspaper links ought to be replaced with text when it is something really 'archive-worthy'.

I read Liam's board last night, and there is so much sadness over his passing, 'an era ending' etc.    That's not the way to honor him. We need to be sure to get out and support our local bard, or BE our local bard. Go see Mairtin de Cogain, for example, who is a young fellow very much in the Makem tradition. Anybody care to name others--besides the great man's kids?
