Good one, Paul, I like Jackie Daly's one about the American visiting
his cousin somewheres in the kingdom of Kerry, needed to use the
toilet, which was outside the house, and upon returning, complained
that there was no door on the outhouse, the Kerryman replied,
no one has ever stolen anything out of there yet. ; )
No time for Boston I guess, too bad, Boston seems comparible to Dublin.
I could not find a session listed at all in the recent edition of The Irish
Emigrant here, even though I know there are some sessions around.
Have fun in Chicago.

I'd just like belatedly to echo Finbar's paean of praise for New York: that's
hat a city ought to be.
Kerryman emigrated to New York, and when he visited home years later, people
sked him what the place was like. "Oh, a great place altogether, lads, but
uge, like." "Would it be as big as, maybe, Tralee?" "Oh, man dear, 'tis twice
he size of Tralee!"
