Thread Name: New Book: Folk Song in England
Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
"She's now regarded by folkies as a historical figure, "
No she isn't - she's regarded as that by (usually American) tourists
It underlines the reliability of their veracity of their own knowledge

Molly is so "recently installed as to be now celebrating her thirtieth year on the streets of Dublin - she was installed in 1988 - she was moved to Suffolk Street in 2014
For your information, Dubliners refer to her as 'The Tart With the Cart'
Similarly, the statue of Anna Livia Plurabelle, a character in James Joyce's Finnegans Wake is referred to as 'The Floozie in the Jacuzzi'
Dubliners, folkies or otherwise, are sensible enough to not take these fictional characters too seriously
THere is no evidence whatever that the statue is based on a real woman
I don't think you scored many points there Lighter, do you
Why do you people insist on making this insulting garbage up - is it an "Irish" thing ?
"Jim Carroll thank goodness a good thread spoiled by your arguments over irrelevant moot points"
Whatever the merits of my 'moot points' - this rather hit-and-run anonymous posting is the only one of yours in a thread running over a year
Can we estimate your interest and knowledge of this subject by that fact or are you a stalker just here to stir it?
Very brave of you, I'm sure

"I am afraid that I have to join the ranks of those who in the past have asked Jim Carroll not to misrepresent what they have said."
Where have I?

I have answered every question put up - every single one - none of you have answered mine, nor do you intend to

I think my point is made, don't you ?
(The Archers, for crying out loud!!)

This has become little more than a mob slanging match - I trust our worthy adjudicator will note this and issue warnings
Let's see, shall we
