"very much in the traditional style"
The description in the notes suggest it is probably traditional - explicit it certainly is
Fairmtoun Labourers, like navvies, were capably and willing to use language far in excess of that - not at the Kirk maybe
Unlike Wales, where the chapel succeeded in virtually killing off the tradition, the 'Presies' only succeeded in driving it underground, where it flourished
Ireland is only now discovering the all-but suppressed 'blue-vein in its tradition
The religious suppression of the real nature of the tradition merits a study in itself
