Oh, I don't know, Chuck. I think that most of the people on the list
are likely to have a deep interest in Irish music, and it seems to me
to be no ruder to communicate in Irish than it is to refuse to take an
interest and do a little work to become familiar with the Irish
language. I don't know why he didn't simply learn it, but Willie
Clancy famously said that he would have gladly traded his music for a
knowledge of the language.
