re: the message about Andy Irvine and Sweeney's Men, the melodic mandolin and bouzouki tremolo at the end of the recording with all the bar noises and conversations in the background, was added by Johnny Moynihan. The tune is Fritz Kreusler's "The Old Refrain", a melancholic song one might have heard in a bar in Dublin, especially since Deanna Durbin sang it in a film. The joke is, if you are dinging the last lines to the melody you end up with"When up to the heavens I take my lay, the angels too will say: TIME, GENTLEMEN, PLEASE!"
