It’s one of my favorite days of year; a chance to celebrate and reflect on my heritage.
My mom was born in Ireland (County Leitrim) and my dad’s mom was born in County Mayo. According to 23andMe, I am 100% northwestern European, with 97.7 percent of that being British/Irish. For all intents and purposes, I consider myself 100% Irish.
The Irish are known for their love of music, so I thought I would share just a handful of my favorite Irish songs. It was tough to choose just a few songs, since there are so many great ones to pick from, and I’ve written many blog posts over the years featuring Irish music.
Some of these may not be considered traditional Irish music, but that’s beside the point as far as I am concerned. These are fun to listen to, and perfect for St. Paddy’s Day. The first three are quite brief (1:30-2:30 long), and the final one is one that Clive made me aware of last year.
If you only have time to listen to one, I’d recommend either the first one or the last one…
