Ted from Australia Irish accent right or wrong? (60* d) Irish accent right or wrong? 09 Jul 99

When I am singing Irish songs I find myself slipping deeper and deeper into my version of an Irish accent, or as I have heard my Irish friends sing it

Does anyone else do this ? And do you think it right or wrong to assume an accent to go with the song?
To sing, say. "The Patriot Game" in my aussie accent would just sound ludicrous,
Let us know what you think.

Regards Ted
