Irish Internet Radio and TV from Dublin, Ireland.
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
If I never get to Ireland I hope the good Lord lets my soul fly over the home of my ancestors on
the way to heaven.

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…
I was in Ireland this August. It was wonderful, the landscapes and the people. A good experience.

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…

I guess I've been out of touch here for a while :) I graduated from school with associates degree back in September of 2010... and still have no job! So, although I look for jobs every day in the paper and online, I also have created my own website for doing websites and design work for those who need it.
I completed my first website for a child care facility about two weeks ago. Hopefully this means…Continue

RTE> Dublin face Limerick in a repeat of their 2009 All-Ireland quarter-final at the same venue, with the Dubs looking to gain revenge for the defeat they suffered that day.
The Metropolitans held a six-point advantage in the game, but they allowed themselves to be pegged back as the Treatymen went on to secure a…Continue

Brace yourself, Bridgid. There is a BRAND new album out, ink-still-wet-on-the-cover-sort-of- thing. The name of the group and album is Full Set. They came to us through Fergal and Enda Scahill. Full Set is six young unbelievably talented singers and musicians. Three from Dublin, one from Cork, one from Corofin, and we don’t know the other.
Doesn’t make any difference. We will…Continue

Just this second got off the phone with Sue Bourne. Who? Well, she has just released a brilliant documentary about the 2010 Irish World Dancing Championships, which were held in Glasgow. It is stunning. The filming and editing is Academy Award material. During the championships, they had 20 cameras at work at the competition. It follows a few individual competitors of the…Continue
Let’s just wander around a bit this time. Ok? A little of this, a little of that. You know the drill.
PEOPLE OF THE TWO ISLANDS.
The Islands of mist and mystic blend of time.
Torn by bloodlust for religious power.
Power wedded by traders and their warrior hordes.
A dance set in new time to ease their desires.
Footsteps a heavy thud upon our graves.
These islands held in imagination’s dream trampled by the leaded heels
of malice themes.
Old before our time to find these driven wished for markers lost within
