Dear Larry,

I believe I am as knowledgeable on Irish history as you and fully understand the significance of some of these old (and new) songs and well as your point about the revisionist version of history regularly served up in most places. My point is I do not think any useful purpose is served by performing such songs these days which is why I will never do them. Songs of peace and reconciliation...yes. Martial songs from the past....no.

All the best,
