"Rocky Road to Dublin", "Nancy Whiskey", "Hills of Connemara", "Beer Beer Beer", "Back Home in Derry", "Tell Me Ma'". The Waterboy's have a couple of tunes that sound more traditonal that I like and they are;"When will we be married", "When you go away", and "Danfords Fancy"

GK.



I love traditional Irish songs and drinking songs and will often turn off the radio on my way home from work so that I can sing them at the top of my lungs. If you know any what are your favorites? If you aren't into the traditional songs, who are your favorite bands? I know I know! It is too difficult to pick!!!





My favorite ballad is Tim Finnigans Wake (a rousing song about the frivolities that take place during a wake. ) and The Foggy Dew (an angry song about the Easter Rebellion), The Wind that Shakes the Barley, to name a few. All sung by the Clancy Brothers.

Does the Hymm to Our Lady of Knock count?

Happy St Patrick's Day everyone.

Great topic Clover

My favorite ones are from the CD many of us snagged while in Ireland at CM Ireland I. (I will never think of Ireland without thinking of the wonderful friends I made on that trip. This is a bit of a plug that if you have the time and the money, consider going on CM Ireland II!) Ireland

My favorite Irish song is, indeed, sad... "The Fields of Athenry".

And without a doubt, my favorite International Irish tenor is a dear friend...Mark Forrest shamrock note...who is phenomenal!

Unfortunately, Mark keeps his work off YouTube, so I'm posting Brian Kennedy's version...
