Lyr Req: Salt (The Chieftains) (22) RE: Lyr Req: Chieftans Song 23 Dec 99

I dont know the song you speak and i'm not sure if this has any relevance whatsoever to your discussion but there is a village in Galway called Monivea where, legend has it, St. Patrick once visited. However, he became enraged when he learned that the locals had eaten his goat. He cursed the villagers, turning some into salt, and condemned the village never to grow in size. The lyrics you mentioned reminded me of this tale and perhaps there is a remote possibility that there is a connection between the song and this incident. Possibly not. Incidentally, the village now claims to have the widest street in Europe. Paul
