Patrick Egan --
My hat off to you Sir! You've nailed it so awfully well! I think your final
paragraph should be
the final word on the discussion (my opinion, of course)....
> Lastly,we hold onto our heritage because it is ours and because we
can.The same can not be said for those that came before us,and were
punished for cultural expression.We do because we can,and because we
are.We know this because it is a very real and cherished part of
ourselves,that we share a common bond with other Celtic folks,and because
we were raised that way,regardless of our address.Let the naysayers make
their ignorant little attempts at classifying us.It's a Celtic
'thing';they wouldn't understand.<
Thank You Patrick!
