St Patrick’s Day – Irish Rock Bands

Leprechaun Saturday was St Patrick’s Day, and by chance we were having a few friends over for a braai! Now while I am not Irish, and I am not a fan of the man who chased the druids out of Ireland, Lois and I thought we would have a little bit of fun, and see if we can get away with only playing music from Irish bands. Before long, we had a playlist of over 8 hours long from our MP3 collection.

Unless I am mistaken, all of the below bands are Irish, or have at least one member from Ireland.

  • The Corrs
  • U2
  • B*Witched
  • Sinéad O’Connor
  • Snow Patrol
  • The Cranberries
  • Sixpence None the Richer
  • The Waterboys
  • Clanned
  • Enya

Who should we have added to the list?
