Irish Internet Radio and TV from Dublin, Ireland.

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 all, I'm new at this but I've enjoyed reading some of the responses so I thought I'd comment.  There are soooo many good bands.  I like Gaelic Storm, Clannad, DeDanaan, Chieftains, Black 47.  There is a group I saw at some festivals last summer that friends and I have enjoyed, is anyone familiar with the Screaming Orphans?  They are a young, fun group of sisters from Donegal I believe.

Grew up listening to Horslips. Fantastic instrumentals, especially Sword of light

 

 Flogging Molly seems to be fast and exciting music when in the local pubs having a few beers
I saw them in Reno for The Speed of Darkness Tour this past May. It was incredible!

For me it's gotta be trad all the way! groups like Lunasa and Altan and the band Donal Lunny formed Ciorras. Not to say though that I dont like singing bands I.e the high kings! ;)
