Thread Name: Irish Civil War executions
Subject: RE: Irish Civil War executions
I took my daughter and her friend to Comhaltas classes in Preston to learn tin whistle. They were also in the Brownies, so I thought they could take the test for their music badge too.

What do they need? asked the whistle teacher. Tunes in two different times, plus the National Anthem. She replied, Well, they can play a jig and a reel, and they already know the National Anthem.

I didn't think the Brownie tester would be expecting the Soldier's Song, so I taught them God Save The Queen myself. They both passed the test and got their badges.
