Happy St. Paddy's Day 2011!

Have a grand St Patrick's Day out there any of you Irish who might be reading! Even if you're not Irish, remember that St. Patrick was actually Scottish!

Next year, you can wear one of my lovely t-shirts from my online store, History Buffs Unlimited!

I also suggest you treat yourself this St Patrick's Day and buy The High King's new album "Memory Lane". It's very good, and I suggest it highly!

Here's a couple other Irish songs for you to enjoy in the meantime:

And one of my favorites at the moment:

Highland Paddy (It's about the Irish who had been living in Scotland and went back over to Ireland to fight for their own people)

Share your favorite Irish song with me this week! Drop me a comment or email and let me know!

Erin Go Bragth Everyone!

  1. Well theres a school of thought that says Patrick was Scottish(from around the area south of Dumfries) but the most likely place of origin is actually Wales. But logically the person we now know as Patrick might well be a composite of various missionaries.
    Favourite Irish song....well Id go with "The Rising of The Moon" or maybe "Boys of the Old Brigade" (the latter reminding me of schoolfriends from 1960s who gave their lives in the 1970s.

  2. I like both of those as well, in fact, I think that last year, I put up Boys of the Old Brigade for St. Patrick's day. I've been listening to the Wolfe Tones a lot lately. They are one of my favorite Irish bands.
