Subject: RE: the word 'dooring' from Lagan Love
I agree with you MAG.
Well done Michael: congrats.
I included a chapter on My Lagan Love in my 2003 book, One Green Hill; journeys through Irish songs. While not claiming that this account is perfect or definitive, it does give a good deal of background on the song, the relevant geography and the life and times of the man who wrote it. The book is obtainable direct from the publisher's website: Beyond the Pale Publications (Belfast).
