The song ?Delilah? becomes the latest victim of the woke central planners. Aside from the sheer stupidity, and the deliberate ignoring of context, banning such songs is an attack on our harmless communal rituals.

I would really recommend the events in Inistioge - the 2008 event was well run, a lovely spot, and an interesting series of meetings, etc.

But, one change on the programme outlined above.

Paul Preston is unable to attend, and has been replaced by Prof. Emmet O'Connor, a well known labour historian at Magee College, Derry, who has written on the Irish in the SCW. He is also the son of Peter O'Connor, one of the Irish Brigadiers.
