Whoa! Jeez, all I said was I couldn't remember which to use! I have no
idea where I picked up "Scots-Irish", perhaps from the previous poster
or possibly somewhere else. Grammer (English, Irish or other) is not my
strong point. Does it really matter?
Anyway, if I had been halfway awake when I posted, I would have seen
that the Museum brochure said "Scotch-Irish". But I wasn't; have to
save the lucid hours for work.
