Thread Name: Ireland's Favourite Folk Song
Subject: RE: Ireland's Favourite Folk Song
These competitions are usually fairly useless and quite often damaging
Thhey are run by people who don't know the first about the music in question and are usually decided by similar people who have the ear of the media
Far more reliable to ask The Irish Traditional Music Archive or 'The Goilin' or 'The Cobblestone' clubs for advice, but these are usually the last people whose opinions are taken into consideration
