Thread Name: Whistling Gypsy - prejudice?
Subject: RE: BS: Whistling Gypsy
Dear Martin,

That's the song I was thinking of, all right. So it's Leo Maguire that wrote it, right? I prefer it in Irish (of course), and I've always been impressed with Proinsias Ó Maonaigh's translation abilities. His translations always sound like they are the 'originals'.
