Spreading the news below further via [log in to unmask],
with an apology for not doing so earlier, plus a recommendation that
all in a position to attend do so, especially as I see some people
who are friends of mine and with whom I have had occasion to share
podiums and/or projects listed - for example, Karen Corrigan and John
Kirk, not to mention Terry Dolan whose path happened to cross mine in
UCD Common Room last night, on my return from Merriman's Winter
School 2007 in Westport.
All praise due to [log in to unmask], for putting so much work
into organizing such an amazing series on the fringes where the
English and Irish languages meet to their mutual advantage. It is
perhaps worth adding two obvious comments: (a) that many aspects of
Irish folklore survive now mostly in English, in which guise some
even crossed the Atlantic and (b) that such aspects may sometimes now
be studied in depth only by those with a good grasp of Hiberno-
English, as well as Irish.
