Right ladies and gentlemen, in light of the up-coming RTE series, this is a thread about our favourite folk/trad songs. Keep it to your top three- if you can! Songs can be native to Ireland or elsewhere. Stick up a memory/reason by all means. Links are not necessary as we all have YouTube. For me,
it is very hard to pick three but I’ll go with:
- The West’s Awake (my da RIP used to sing it)
- Home from the Sea (a song of hope)
- the Dutchman (no reason needed)
Bain ceol as!
