That is the trouble with golf...ethics! Fishing has no such problems therefore I am ethical to a fault. Some fishermen I have met are the biggest liars on the planet.

Whiters, you need to conduct covert surveillance on your nearest fishmonger!


Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't the Scots use "Mac" and the Irish "Mc"?

Not sure, Henry, I dinna speak the language!

No, TBH, only the lazy use Mc...or even worse M'
Either is correct and it is not the Irish Scottish thingy. Unless it is whisky.

Miss Red,

You are right:

"There is, however, one distinction you can make as far as differentiating between a name being Scottish or Irish. If it is an O' name it is always Irish (those in Scotland are mostly nineteenth-century emigrations), but if it is a mac, mc or other variation it can be both Scottish or Irish!"
