Ireland has a long and emotional relationship with the Choctaw Nation, the Iroquois, and Haudenosaunee Confederacy.

That was a gracious act. An other article I read a month or so ago had Ireland at 10th place in the 10 teams playing. This is not to dismiss their sacrifice in any way. Giving up your shot in a tournament, even a long shot, is painful. Teams work hard to be included in playoffs. But it does show a practical pragmatism that is also to be praised. By putting the 3rd place team in their proper spot they proved to be great sportsmen. Bravo.

Tell us something.: Been a fluter, citternist, and uilleann piper; committed now to the way of the harp.

Oh, yeah: also a mod here, not a spammer. A matter of opinion, perhaps.

A noble act, and may that mindset catch on.

Tell us something.: I have a fascination for musical instruments of all kinds, and though I'm not a very good player I have a small collection of acoustic instruments including 2 recorders, 2 tin whistles , 3 guitars and 2 ukuleles.
