Dear Gary T,

I am Irish and find this and similar songs from both "traditions" quite distasteful in this day and age. I never include any such material in my repertoire, neither do I accept any requests for it, as I believe it serves no useful purpose. This is by way of addressing your comments earlier about those identifying/sympathizing with the Irish really enjoying it and it being a "crowd pleaser". Perhaps this is part of the problem.

For similar reasons I normally refrain from posting in the many "troubles" threads.

Yours respectfully,
