I'm utterly bemused by this response, but note, once again, that its sender hides behind a cloak of anonymity. If you're so confident about your 'knowledge', then why not reveal your identity?

Whoever 'Mary' is, s/he clearly is suffering from some form of attention deficiency disorder and is also reading some review which is in her/his head rather than the one actually written.

At no point in my long and varied life have I ever confused the singing of Nora Cleary and Siney Crotty, but this eejit, 'Mary' is clearly in need of some form of psychiatric help which will probably bedevil health professionals for years.

As for the knuckle dusters, clearly irony has no place in the folklore of West Clare. 'Mary', it was meant to be taking the piss regarding Jim Carroll's well-known favour of fisticuffs.
