Written for Celtic Woman, a tale of life in ye olden days Dublin:

Celtic Woman-(nearly but not quite) alike)

I'll have to listen again without the cheap earplugs, couldn't make out a lot, one of kid's is sleeping right behind me. From what I could make out had me laughing, I was really missing those "fuckin' flying fiddles" though. Love to see this played on NPR

I thought it was sad. I've seen starving women in Ireland who are begging on the streets for their children because their husbands drank away the money. There is the sting of truth in this song.

Celtic Woman has not addressed this issue because of the social implication of the exploitation of women by the "authoritative" (Magisterial) elements of male Ireland.

I really don't think that this is too funny because it is real.

Stringsinger, I entirely take your points about the reality of the content expressed in this parody. It struck me as poinient likewise. And yet, my own Irish family would tell the most terrible stories with a style that could make one weep as soon as laugh.

I don't think that 'black' and 'close to the bone' humour has ever been beyond the pale for Irish people. I've sure as hell heard 'worse' myself, and that from those who both care and know the reality of both past and present, and who can deliver a worthy punchline born of those realities too...
