Still don't know what SPD is, apart from Starship's definition!

I've already been singing along with Cathy Jordan of Dervish this afternoon: she suddenly popped up about 4.15pm GMT on Facebook Live, and did a truly lovely set of songs for about 2O minutes - all on her mobile phone.

I gather Sharon Shannon is doing something similar at 8pm GMT tonight, as are some of my local folk friends.

Many thanks, Steve Shaw, for the details. McCormack's father (Andrew) was from Scotland, Galashiels, so maybe he was considered better educated by the employers than a local, given the reputation for learning and literacy which used to be justified.
I've already applied for the Irish Passport to which I too am entitled, since, quite apart from the whole "Brexit" business, rather than be a Subject in a hereditary
monarchy no matter how venerated I would prefer to be a Citizen in a republic, no matter how corrupt.
With regard to the original idea, maybe the first one could be problematic in some places, since whatever the admirable emphasis on unity in the original, there is now an alternative version with some lines which are not what you would call "inclusive". I've always thought Andrew Cherry's song, "The Dear Little Shamrock", a good example of a song which is both light-hearted and seemingly inconsequential, yet at the same time with the potential for a deeper "resonance" (depending on which verses are given). Good Luck.

"Symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD) is a condition that causes excessive movement of the pubic symphysis, either anterior or lateral, as well as associated pain, possibly because of a misalignment of the pelvis." I doubt that's what's meant in this case, but who knows. I think Elvis had it.

What/where is SPD, and shouldn't we all sing at the same time, like 6pm Dublin time? On our porches/balconies?

My great-grandad and John McCormack's dad allegedly fell out when they were in competition for a factory foreman's job. His dad got the job, and I'm not sure what happened to our side, but we think he may have been sacked. It would have been in Athlone City in, perhaps, the 1880s or 1890s. That's what's been handed down! My grandma, his daughter, was born there in 1902, which entitles me to Irish citizenship, which I'm seriously considering.

@Steve Shaw: unless that was just a joke, a humorous "Lie" (Tall Tale), could you supply any details of the fisty cuffs in Athlone? I use the spelling of "fisticuffs" from a copy of either The Donegal Democrat or the Tyrconnel Tribune, about ten years back.

I am not real Irish. I am Irish American and I come from a community that sang at least the last two. I do not presume to tell real Irish what to do, and have no desire to engage in conversations with them or anyone about what the real Irish do on St Patrick's Day. Irish in America took a Saint's day and ran with it and I think the more non-religious aspects of it are also celebrated in Ireland.

I wouldn't dream of making such a rash judgement. It's just that I'd have thought that real Irish songs might be more apposite, but I'm not that bothered I suppose. Even Count John McCormack, whose dad once had a fist-fight with my great-grandad in Athlone, sang 'em, after all...

(My great-Grandad lost...)

Well, only the first of those three songs is definitely Irish, as it was written by an Irishman. Molly Malone has only very dubious Irish origins, if any at all, and Irish Eyes is rock-solid American.

Are you suggesting that an Italian song is
preferential?

Do we need a sobriety check-point?
