Thread Name: Irish Wedding Mass
Subject: RE: Irish Wedding Mass
Well so much for my "couple of hours". But unfortunately work and sleep get in the way of singing much too often.

Well here goes.

The Spinning Wheel Song
The Rose of Tralee
The Darlin' Girl From Clare
The Snowy-Breasted Pearl
I Know My Love (by his way of walkin')
The Sally Gardens
Raglan Road
Old Maid in the Garret
Easy and Slow
Let Him Go, Let him Tarry
My Singing Bird
The Limerick Rake
My Bonny Boy is Young But He's Growing
Maids When You're Young (never wed an old man)
The Old Woman From Wexford.
My Lovely Rose of Clare
The Wild Rover
Mary From Dungloe Carraickfergus
The German Clockwinder
Bunch of Thyme Go Lassie Go
If I Was A Blackbird
The 200 Year Old Alcoholic
On the Banks of the Roses
Spancilhill
She Moved Through The Fair
The House of the Rising Sun
The Lark in the Clear Air
The Mountains of Mourne
McBreens Heffer
Red Haired Mary
The Zoological Gardens
I Courted Biddy Magee
The Queen of Connemara ("in a cot in Connemara there's a wife and wee one praying")
Danny Boy - (of course!!)

Songs of Love, lost love, funny songs and all sorts. I'll
ask some musical friends for suggestions of Irish Music
but the airs to some of the songs mentioned are quite beautiful.

Hope this helps as a start.

And Remember!
When you jump the broom.
Make sure she picks it up immediately and uses it.....on the floor.

Best of luck and Slán.
