Update to Carrickfergus Post

by Shannen W. Coffin

Update:   And correct me you have.  Several readers point out that it is Liam Clancy soloing in the video that I posted, not Tommy Makem.  I raised a pint with the Clancy Brothers back in ‘91 at O’Flaherty’s Irish Channel in New Orleans, but I may have had a few pints before they got around to me.  So I regret the error.  That said, I’d still like confirmation that it is the Clancy Brothers version of the song on last night’s Boardwalk Empire.
