Irish Internet Radio and TV from Dublin, Ireland.
The hills seemingly run their length of the Earth, and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. I begin to run, I run so hard I start to feel it burning my thighs. But for all things, I wouldn't stop. I didn't want to, though it hurt. The grass on my feet, the freedom of the wind that carried the smells of life and magic on its sweet breath. I feel myself at one with what I always thought I was apart from. Oh, Mother of Life, Mother of everything sweet and beautiful,…Continue

Welcome to the 2012 Livies. Along with TG4, these are the most eagerly anticipated Irish Traditional Music Awards of the year. The reason? LiveIreland's unprecedented and instantaneous worldwide reach in its readership. When any site like LiveIreland is the 900 pound gorilla in the room, it's paid attention to. It is our honor to recognize the Best of the Best with the 2012 Livies. So, here we go:…
Although I am not often moved to comment I feel this must be the best (for me at least) Radio Station ever.
Pure music with only occasional but effective chat and a playlist which rarely fails to enchant and connect with something deep within.

There are three places you have to remember during this entire ramble. Copperplate in London, Rampant Lion in Villa Park, Illinois (USA), and Claddagh Record Distributors across the street here in Dublin. That is where you can get these fabulous Christmas stocking stuffers for the Irish traditional music fan in your…Continue

Christmas is approaching, and next month we’ll have a huge lineup of albums we have recommended over the past year as stocking stuffers for the trad fan in your life. Best of the Best type thing. And actually, a precursor to the vaunted 2011 Livies in which we hand out awards for the year’s best. The LiveIreland Awards are really sought after, as they represent the site here.…Continue

Qui est déjà allé en Irlande connait l’importance de la marque Guinness. C’est LA marque irlandaise emblématique, je crois qu’on peut même dire un symbole de l’Irlande. C’est en 1759 que l’histoire commence. C’est à cette date qu’Arthur Guinness signe un bail lui assurant la jouissance de la célèbre…

Well, here we go. Winter is coming. But here are five albums to keep you warm and cozy.
First up is the great, Seamus Begley on button box and vocals, joined by Tim Edey on guitar. The name of the album is Disgrace Notes. We are late to the dance on this one, but the important thing is that we arrived. There are few, if any, male singers we love more in Irish music than…
Lots of mini-type reviews this month. As usual, they have backed up on the desk. The result? We bring you only the best of the best, as usual.
Ceol Sidhe features Steve Cooney, Charlie Lennon, and Michael Hynes on guitar, fiddle and concertina, respectively. There are 19 cuts on the album, each more brilliant than the other. Believe it or not, there are only two…Continue
I wrote this in a very nostalgic mood, while listening to the haunting sounds of the uilleann pipe;
"What is this I feel every time I see pictures of the wild rugged landscape of Ireland and Scotland…the Celtic grounds.
What is this I feel every time I hear the sound of ancient Celtic music…the raw, rasping sounds of history, the pain, beauty, knowledge and love.
It’s as if I’ve just stood up out of time, that I’ve become a part of that time.
A woman that came…
