GUEST,Jim Carroll Songs illegal to sing in Ireland (131* d) RE: Songs illegal to sing in Ireland 28 Sep 07

One of the books on the Church's notorious index was the Irish classic 'The Tailor and Ansty' by Eric Cross.
It's a while since I've read it and it may seem fairly innocuous now but it is superb and deserves to be read by everybody.
Of course one of the urban (do I mean urbane?) legends was that the song McCaffery carried a threat of imprisonment if sung by a serviceman in the British Army - totally untrue .
