"They just know that they are not attacks. "
That's why you responded and explained - of course is it!!
The silent acquiescence to of your behavior has convinced me that Limerick is a far better resting place for Walter than anywhere in the UK
At least here traditional singers and what they had to say are respected

No wonder traditional song is where it is
