Thread Name: Origins: Tim Finnegan's / Finigan's Wake
Subject: RE: Biddy O'Brien and Tim Finnegan?
Crowds? Crowds of people all familiar with Finnegan's wake? That makes me sad. In my little town of Eugene, Oregon there are only three places you can hear Irish music. My car stereo, mt brother's car stereo, (another Mudcatter) and the Knight's of Columbus Hall, but then only on St. Patrick's Day. I doubt if we could find three people in this town altogether at the same time who knew the words to Finnegan's Wake well enough to participate. Rick - I'll trade you pubs any day.
