Subject: RE: Country of orgin of these songs please!
Not very PC Mr McGrath! Remember there may be Americans reading - you mean 'vertically challenged' and 'big boned'. Who says that they're 'just the sort' - rank stereotyping of the kind I'm attempting to commit! Anyway, I'm talking of a certain mental toughness and sense of perspective which seems to desert the Celts at regular intervals, eg, for about 200 years after we give them a good slapping (or 350 odd in the case of Cromwell!).
