What's everyone's favorite Irish or Celtic group? I like John Doan, Celtic Woman, and The Wolfe Tones. ("You'll Never Beat the Irish" by Wolfe Tones is absolutely great!) I'm looking for all kinds of new groups, so be sure to throw any names into the discussion when you feel like doing so. Thanks, people!

HI Bruno:
it's just a guess, but you may be looking for the song "Here's a health to the Company." The first line of the song begins . . .
"My friends and companions, come join me in rhyme". If that's not it, then I'm at a loss.
I just found this as well:

Health to the Company (song title)
Here's a health to the company, and one to my lass.
Let us drink and be merry, all out of one glass.
Let us drink and be merry, all grief to refrain,
For we may or might never all meet here again.
Fine friends and companions, come join me in rhyme,
Come lift up your voices in chorus with mine.
Come lift up your voices all grief to refrain,
For we may and might never all meet here again.


Here's a health to the wee lass, that I love so well.
For style and for beauty there is none can excel.
She smiles on my countenance as she sits on my knee.
Sure, there's no-one on earth who's a happy as me.


Our ship lies to harbor, she's ready to dock.
I wish her safe landing, without any shock.
And if ever we meet agian, by land or by sea,
I will always remember your kindness to me.

Chorus (Repeat chorus)



Before you get your tree lighted,

See this, you will be delighted,
  DIF, they did say,
  The bands who will play
in August, you will be excited!

Brendan Murphy & The 4 of us have been one of my favorite Irish songwriters & band for over 20 years now.

Check out their last upload to the net its on you tube just the last week will give you an idea of why they are so popular...

Funny stuff and they are uploading their entire performance over the next two months for fans to see. great stuff, you can find them on facebook.


Seriously..Could anybody really have just one favorite Irish Music Group???

Irish music is just too damn good to have only one favorite! With groups such as..

**Charley and the Bhoys and songs like- "THE SPIRIT OF CELTIC" & "THE GLASGOW IRISH"..

**The Wolftones-"You'll never beat the Irish" & "Boston Rose"..{much more}..

**The Fureys-"Through the eyes of an Irishman" & "The Frying Pan Song"..

**Celtic Thunder - "Irelands Call" & "Heartland"..

**The High Kings - "Paddy's Green Shamrock Shore" & "Ar Eireann Nl Neosainn Ce hl"..

**Celtic Woman {Lisa Kelly} - Need I say more???

The list just goes on & on like the energize bunny on cafine !! LOL......For me there is no

such thing as just one favorite Irish Group!

Solas has been the best I've heard lately

absolute #1 =planxty

1.van morrison

2.lawrence nugent

3.luke kelly

4.marius müller-westernhagen

5.nina hagen

In no particular order,


Planxty,The Bothy Band,The Wolfetones,Horslips and Christy Moore.

I am so glad to see Christy Moore come up as a favorite. I am a really true Christy Moore fan and have most of all of his works. Tis a shame that he won't cros the pond to .the USA. For all Chriisty Moore fans try U Tube. You won't be disappointed. Slainte !
