As the old saying goes: There is Irish in all of us!

And with annual St. Patrick’s Day celebrations getting bigger and bigger in recent years, people of all different nationalities are donning their green attire and honoring Irish traditions.

Drinking Guinness, emblazoning your face with shamrock face paint, heading to a parade and eating beef stew or corned beef & cabbage to name a few.

But Ireland has given us some of the greatest musicians in recent history - so what better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, than by singing some famous Irish songs.
