If you want to hear how Mr Zimmerman sounds in Irish, check out the last 15 minutes of Sinéad ar Maidin, that was broadcast on RnaG recently between the the hours of 1045am and 11am, and hear ‘Shelter From The Storm’ performed by Liam Ó Maonlaí of the Hothouse Flowers; it works surprisingly well.

Which is more than I can say for Joni Mitchell — same show — who I find is equally impenetrable in either language, although that is probably my fault and not Ms Mitchell’s.
