Brigie Lyr Req: Irish Ways and Irish Laws (28) RE: Lyr Req: 'Irish Ways and Irish Laws' 04 Sep 00

A quote from Christy Moore:the singer of the song! " One night after a Hearts gig in the Baggot Inn, Dublin, John Gibbs the author of the song sent up an empty Major packet with this song written on the back of it. We were so tken with it that we started rehearsing it the same night and two years later ^found that it had passed into the tradition. Of all the songs I have ever done this and "Only our rivers run free" were the songs than became part of the general Irish repertoire in a very quick time"

So there you go!! How many of you know the Baggot Inn,or know what a Major packet is???!!!!!
