Margo Planxty? (23) RE: Planxty? 28 Apr 01


I'm learning Planxty George Brabazon so this thread is fascinating to me. Just a thought - If the end of the word "Planxty" is pronounced like the letter "t" couldn't it be like "ti" in Italian, meaning you. That might fit in with the Italian/Latin thoery: thank YOU George....

About Colonel John Irwin, I heard that O'Carolan was being approached by a couple of robbers, and that Irwin happened to be there and stopped them, hence the writing of Planxty Irwin. Got that story from my guitar teacher, but don't know his source for it.
