Subject: William McCrea
From: Remi From Paris

I heard that song at the Millenium trad festival in Enis Co.clare, dec 99. The words (hilarious) go approximately like this (3rd verse)

He's not a Scot, he's not a Brit He's not a Dutch, he's not a Fritz....

...Let's hear it for William Mc Crea He's the saviour of our Nation...

thanks for your help...

By the way..., I'm also looking for a song by Michael (Mickey) McConnell called "The famous Five" If you heard of a recording of this, let me know

Other request "David Trimble and his Pimple" Thanks a Million

Bloavez Mad (that's Breton for Happy New Year"

The Famous Five Song is on Mickey McConnell's Tape "Peter Pan and me" pubished by Spring Records, Rostrevor Co Down and available from me (Ulstersongs).

The Willie McCrea and David Trimble songs were written by Sean Mone of Keady, Co Armagh and have not been published though they are in circulation as performances and on paper. I am not prepared to post them as publicly as here - they are sensitive, satirical documents. But if anyone is interested enough to write to me - snail mail - I'll consider sending them.

To John Moulden

Thanks for your help. As a Frenchman and lover of Irish music I have to stress that I am an absolutely non sectarian person. I think that Mr Mc Crea deserves respect as anyone else, although his views might seem a little bit narrow to a foreigner, to say the least. I liked the song because it's funny, and I hope Mr Mc Crea found it funny too if he heard it. If not, he lacks humour. I have deep respect for David Trimble for : 1 not having been killed by fanatics of his own camp 2 sitting at the same table that Gerry Adams and Martin Mc Guinness - peace is to be made between enemies, not friends, as they say...

then the song about him is funny too. In all, I can sing Kevin Barry, but I have a quite nice rendering of the "ould orange flute" as well. I'll be delighted to snail mail this request to you if you send your address to me

P.S. : and if you come to paris, check in at the Quiet Man, 5 rue des Haudriettes, 75003, prods and taigs and frogs and scots, all of them welcome - even Man U supporters , three to four sessions a week.

To Martin Ryan

Of course I was there. I am the tall balding French guy that sung in French + one or two Iriqh songs. Hope to see you soon in Paris. Jery O' Reilly is coming end of Jan. for a Ceili and workshops with the Irish Association. If you can get the words of the requested song from Jimmy Mc Farland, I'd be really grateful.

Thanks a million, see you in Paris.

By the way the Quiet Man has its site !!! (under construction)

slon, happy new year !!!

Talk to Gerry when you see him - he should be able to provide at least one of the pair of songs.

Hey Remi,
When you see Jerry give him my regards and tell him I'll see him in Hughes's in Dublin, after the Slieve Gullion weekend this year.

P.S. : wanna learn "tha Queen Song" written by Colm Sands ? You'll find that in the lungs of Eoghàn Lucey at the Quiet Man, 5 rue des Haudriettes, Paris (I know it but I don't know the chap who wrote it, and Eoghàn dous).
