    Adolf Hitler, the Irish Folk Music Fan

    http://www.irishcentral.com/news/Ado...music-fan.html

    Newly released historical photographs reveal that famous Irish musician Sean Dempsey played for Adolf Hitler in 1936, and the Nazi dictator loved his music.

    Dempsey, an uileann piper, was invited to play for Hitler and propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels during a visit to Berlin in 1936 after being told that Hitler was an Irish folk music fan.

    When he arrived to play however, there was no room for him to sit, which he needed to do to play, and it looked like it would be canceled.

    however, Hitler jumped up and demanded that an S.S. member get down on his hands and knees and that Dempsey sit astride him while he played.

    Dempsey played what was described as a 'haunting air' as Hitler listened with rapt attention. After he performed, Hitler presented him with a gold fountain pen while Goebbels clapped wildly.

    The bizarre scene was revealed for the first time in a new exhibition of Irish photographs from that era called 'Ceol na Cathra.' The exhibition opened in Dublin and was collected by legendary fiddle player Mick O’Connor.

    Also in the exhibit are rare photographs from the early days of The Chieftains and Sean O'Riada, the father of modern Irish folk music.

    Not all that surprising considering Hitler WAS Keltic-Dinaric

    Hitler had a half Irish nephew called William Patrick Hitler, and Liverpool legend had it that Hitler came to stay with his brother Alois who had married an Irish girl. It is said that Hitler stayed at his brother house at 102 Upper Stanhope Street in Toxteth, Liverpool before the first war world, although the evidence is a bit thin for this.

    Ironically their house was boomed in WW2, and is no longer there, although the family had long since moved to America.

    But I personally like to think that Hitler did stay here in Liverpool, but maybe that’s because I want to.

    Naturally Hitler liked Irish folk music, every German (and most Northern Europeans for that matter) I have spoken to liked Irish music and the country, it is only the English in my experience who hate the Irish, something I learned when I moved on to the continent.
    De weg naar de hel is geplaveid met goede voornemens.

    Im not surprised by any of this..

    I was more surprised large parts of what is mostly called 'Austria' in the modern day or 'Ostmark' personally to myself has large areas of very original ancient Celtic settlements. When I first visited Hallstatt it really felt such a spiritual and harmonious place but I was to learn this is possibly only the most famous of what was once an established Celtic culture in and all around the entire region.

    Schlesien was also largely abundant with very early central European Celtic culture so this modern day Poland can kiss my ass on whichever cheek they so choose as either way they lose out on their shallow argument for a so called 'Only' slavic origins Schlesien used as an historical excuse after they annexed it via the USSR Occupation of the entire state.

    Under International Law the Potsdam Treaty remains Illegal..

    If anyone has any more information on this please enlighten us if I may kindly ask..
