GUEST,JJ's wife Folklore: Dingle Regatta: Why 'Hey ho' etc? (37) RE: Folklore: Dingle Regatta: Why 'Hey ho' etc? 17 Jan 08


Yes, Joe Joyce, the People's Choice got it from the Liverpool Ceili Band and it was Eamon Coyne who started it. Joe introduced it to Boston and it became his theme tune and the Dingle Regattae was not the same when played without Joe in the room. Everyone would look around and wait for the Heigh Ho, it's off to Co. Kerry we go. Now when it is played, you can only think of Joe and smile. Played at the end of his funeral mass with the whole church clapping as they processed out. Way to go Joe. We miss ya.
