Show 155 – St. Patrick’s Day

posted in: Past Shows

Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig ort! It’s our Saint Patrick’s Day show, and to acknowledge International Women’s Day, we’re featuring an hour of all-Irish music performed by women artists. This show bypasses the usual “green beer” pub fare and basks in the traditional sounds of Irish women playing music for singing and dancing.

This week, we feature: Florence Fahy, Cathie Ryan, Caroline Keane, Emer Mayock, Lily Gems & Eileen O’ Driscoll, Barry & Laura Kerr, Dolores Keane, Nuala Kennedy & Mike Bryan, Louise Mulcahy, The Friel Sisters,
Maire Ni Ghrada, Theresa O’Grady, Burning Bridget Cleary, Altan, Déanta, and Mairéad Ní Dhomhnaill.

Our FairPlé score this week: 100
