GUEST,Ballyholme De Dannan Name Dispute (50) RE: De Dannan Name Dispute 10 Aug 09

There were a few follow-up calls to RTE (Irish radio) the following day including calls from John Faulkner and former De Dannan singer Eleanor Shanley.

Faulkner made the point that McMahon's remarks were thinly veiled xenophic in nature when he made much of the fact that Finn was born in England and fact which seemed to disqualify him (in McMahon's eyes) from involvement in Irish music. Andy Irvine and Kevin Bourke look out! McMahon's checking birth certificates now.

Eleanor Shanley also made the point that Finn - far from being merely a second rate accompanist - was the man who worked out the arrangements for most of De Dannan's songs.
