I was going to link this in the "Unpopular Opinions" thread.

I can't argue with any of it, because I realise I actually know feck all about music from Ireland.

I wouldn't have it mine,but I seriously cant believe they dont have the Radiators- ghostown in there. Especially when it's just been reissued.

Live and dangerous is a cop out choice. It's like someone said " I suppose we should have a Thin Lizzy record in there"

Usually there is a dispute about the inclusion of artists from Northern Ireland.
Not by me. I remember seeing people talking issue (not here) with Gary Moore being referred to as a great Irish guitarist. Basically saying he should called northern Irish or British, not Irish.

Do they mention all the others in that case? How do they feel about Thin Lizzy?
