Top Ten Irish songs to keep the party going!

Are you ready for St. Patrick’s Day? Is your liver??

 

St. Patrick’s Day was a more solemn occasion in Ireland once upon a time. It was a religious holiday, not a drinking one. But America decided to get a bit raucous in celebration of Ireland’s patron saint, and brought out the tacky green shamrocks and the parades. Ireland has finally gotten on the bandwagon!

 

Here are some songs to keep the party at the pub going strong. Complete with videos!

Now you’ve no excuse not to join in the celebrations!

Here’s a low down of the names, background and we’ve even provided you with lyrics!

“The Irish Rover”

A traditional Irish song about a magnificent, though improbable, sailing ship that reaches an unfortunate end. One that is only sung after many a beer is consumed and Irish people get nostalgic. Some may end up in tears.

Sing along now:

“On the fourth of July eighteen hundred and six,
We set sail from the sweet cove of Cork,
We were sailing away with a cargo of bricks,
For the grand city hall in New York,
‘Twas a wonderful craft, she was rigged fore-and-aft,
And oh, how the wild winds drove her.
She’d got several blasts, she’d 27 masts,
And we called her the Irish Rover…”
