One thing the original e-Mailer got right is that the tune you get on the link that says listen to Haste to the wedding - or something like that is not in fact the tune Haste to the Wedding although it it a jig played by the band by that name. Even eejits get things right occasionally.
I'm intrigued as to whether the english tune called HTTW is the same as the one popular in Ireland, and if so where did the tune originate.
For those of you who can remember back that far, the jig popular in Ireland by that name was the theme tune for the TV series "The Irish RM"
