Thanks to Fibula Mattock for those very interesting links. The account of the fishery dispute by Father Kennedy reads very convincingly. He seems to be saying that the local fishermen cooperative now runs the show completely, and that any controls on catches relate to stock preservation and market forces. Brian Hannon's post, on the other hand, suggests there is still a strong sense of grievance by some fishermen. It may be, Larry, that this is one of those issues that are more likely to be sorted out by a letter to the Office of Fair Trading, if the root of the problem is how fishing licenses are handed out by the monopoly holder. If, on the other hand, the problem is that some absentee title holder is still getting a backhander, then I am afraid Mr Hannon may not have much success. The entire housing market in Scotland is still based on ancient feu holders rights. I don't envy your task of setting all this to music. But if you manage it, I'll be the first to buy the record.
