Irish History in Song

With St. Patrick's Day this Friday, I'm kicking off a new series of blog posts, looking at the historical content of Irish folk songs. With each post, I'll heavily link-up the lyrics of a song with Wikipedia articles which provide the song's historical context. I'll keep this post updated with links to each post in the series.

  1. 14 March: Viva la Quinta Brigada
  2. 15 March: O'Donnell Abú
  3. 17 April (Easter Monday): A Row in the Town
