Thread Name: Lyr Add: Irish versions of Child Ballads
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Irish versions of Child Ballads
It's the CND that did it
You may not know that stands for Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament a Britain wide movement which dominated politics in the early sixties and organised huge marches from The Neclear Weapons center at Aldermaston in Berkshire to London in order to stop their proliferation
Those of us who were on them are proud to have been there and have ffond memories of very sore feet - long marches
The ballad project moves on apace at the moment - more ballads in the offing
Thanks again,
Jim
