Happy Monday! St. Patrick's day is coming soon, do you have 'yer corned beef and cabbage ready to go?? In honor of music Monday and St. Pat, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite Irish tunes. (I'm Irish by birth - named after my Great Granny Jenny O'Connell, but I become a lot more Irish this time of year!)
First off, my new favorite. A little ditty from Flogging Molly called "What's Left Of The Flag".
An old favorite, and the necessary Riverdance vid - Countess Cathleen by Bill Whelan. Jean Butler is absolutely stunning.
Because I miss home so much this time of year, The Dropkick Murphys "I'm Shipping Up To Boston". There will never be a better place in the world to be than Southie on St. Pats. Just sayin'.
And the best for last - my favorite song. The one that reminds me of all that is dear to me at home when I'm miles away across the world. The one that keeps me sane when I can't stand the sound of my own heart and the sea any longer. Afro Celt Sound System "Persistence of Memory".
