Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Nancy Spain (Barney Rush)
Yes the daughter of the man from Scapa Flow is actually my Aunt! My Dad was a Clare man and his father my grandfather fought in WW2. He defended the island of Scapa Flow from German U Boats coming to attack the Orkneys Islands. Anyway when he returned home he was know as the Scapa Flow man. Christy had a crush on my Dad's sister my aunt and he had a dance with her one time as Christy worked in Clare for many years. Anyway thats why he says Nancy Spain the daughter of the man from Scapa Flow!
