I play in the trad Irish music sessions here in Manchester, England. A short necked tenor banjo would be easier for Irish music--the frets are not so widely spaced as on a five string. Easier for attaining speed don't you think?

Very true! Another plus of the tenor is that you get basically an entire extra string to play with -- having to rearrange songs to have a D base kills a lot of the fun Scots tunes. But I think the real reason is I have to keep myself from buying a third banjo...for at least a couple more years! [grin]
