In thinking about these songs and how they are not legit Irish songs reminds
me of my lovely German aunt who played the organ at St Gabe's. She wrote
many an Irish song, and played and organized and rehearsed for all the St
Patrick shows at Gabe's but hadn't a drop of Irish blood in her. Everyone thought
she was Irish because she had red hair (Germans do) and blue eyes and her
husband's surname was Philipps and spelled the French way.

You just never know unless you ask....
