Irish Music For St. Patrick's Day (Day 3)

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone.

A few Irish proverbs:

A good beginning is half the work
A buckle is a great addition to an old shoe
Proverbs cannot be contradicted
Speed and accuracy do not agree
'Tis afterwards that everything is understood
Trouble hates nothing as much as a smile
The windy day is not the day for thatching
You must empty a box before you fill it again

I can only vouch for that one about thatching.

Irish Tunes - Day 3 - not all by Irish artists, but everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day!

Dropkick Murphys - Dirty Glass (Irish punk, albeit from an American band (see above note; not all the others are by Irish artists either...), from Blackout)

Great Big Sea - Lukey (rollicking song, from Road Rage)

Sinead O'Connor and Aslan - Up In Arms (wistful, slightly spacey song, from Collaborations)

The Frank and Walters - Cemetry Gates (Smiths cover, from The Smiths Is Dead)

The Mahones - Paint The Town Red (another rollicking one, from Rise Again, etc.)
