Influence of Terry Hooley[edit]

A film of Hooley's life story was recently released at the opening of the Belfast Film Festival.

It would appear to suggest that Mr Hooley played a significant role in getting the band airtime on John Peel's show (via a contact of his in the BBC whom he had met in his Belfast shop).

If that's true, perhaps that significant event should be attributed to Mr Hooley. Presently, the article suggests that the Undertones themselves sent a copy of the song directly to John Peel and does not refer to any third party's help.

Irish cats[edit]

An editor using dynamic IPs is repeatedly inserting Irish categories per this edit. I'm posting this here in the hope that they will discuss their preferred version rather than reflex-revert again. RashersTierney (talk) 14:16, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

It's been ongoing for a while. The cats clearly state in their pages that they are for bands from the Republic of Ireland, or if not directly then the parent category for them. I don't know what can be done, it's obviously the same editor continuously as they have the exact same editing patterns each time, they hit The Undertones and Cara Dillon.

And they're back. Canterbury Tail talk 11:32, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
So it's just getting into a vandalism revert again. It's obviously vandalism as the categories being added are Republic of Ireland specific categories and the Undertones are from Belfast. It's like adding them to a category on German Rock Bands. Canterbury Tail talk 12:02, 4 October 2012 (UTC)
