Woman of Ireland

One of the greatest folk/ballad singers ever. Raglan Road by Luke Kelly
She may be as mad as a bag of hammers but my god she was beautiful and incredibly good. Sinéad O’Connor - She moved through the Fair

One of the best riffs ever. Thin Lizzy - Emerald

If you’re looking for something to watch but you may have missed. There’s the fantasticly funny In Bruges or the much more serious Wind That Shakes The Barley

Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig.


Celtic Thunder. http://youtube.com/watch?v=YY1_qlTr-rM&feature=related

That’s the alternative Anthem sang at Irish rugby internationals as players from both sides of the border play on the team. It’s best heard in it’s rightful place.

Here it is being sang by 80,000ish at Croke Park on one of the biggest days in Irish sport. It was the first time Ireland had played England in Croke Park(the home of Irish Gaelic sport). The blood was up. We slaughered them :smiley:

Boulevard Brewing Company’s Irish Ale.

It’s a seasonal beer for them, so it’s only available roughly the first quarter of the year. I should probably go stock up before it’s all gone!

Clany Bothers and Tommy Makem.

and of course, my old band, Finagle.:smiley:


I once saw on Saturday Night Live – can’t seem to find it on Youtube – an ad for an album of traditional Irish songs. There was “The Incoherent Song,” and “The Drinking and Fighting Song” (“We’ll drink and drink and drink and drink and drink and drink and drink, then we’ll fight and fight and fight and fight and fight and fight and fight . . .”). It was from when John Lovitz was in the cast, because I remember him featured in a song about “Michael Sean Patrick Flanagan Goldstein the Drunken Irish Jew,” or something like that.

My favorite Irish thing of all time* is The Commitments.

*James Joyce, George Bernard Shaw, Jonathan Swift, the Cuchulainn Cycle, the Book of Kells – y’all can suck it!
