Thread Name: St. Patrick's Day favourites
Subject: RE: St. Patrick's Day favourites
I like to hear songs about Irish places on St. Patrick's Day. They evoke nostalgia, yet are somehow less sorrowful than most immigration songs. Two of my favorites are Galway Bay and The Cliffs of Dooneen. Christy Moore's version of the latter is lovely.
