If you are gonna listen to Irish music, it has to be proper traditional music and not that Irish country rubbish.

We need a thread dedicated to Trad

My university has a society dedicated to Irish traditional music called TradSoc and they play a lot of traditional Irish instruments. They played at a Christmas carol service in there a couple of years ago.

I was unfortunate to stumble upon one of those dreadful Daniel O'Donnell cards. Noticed there was also a Cliff Richard one. It was in Clintons Cards or whatever it's called.

Did it play his version of Silent Night when you opened it? The Cliff Richard one probably plays Congratulations or one of his awful Christmas songs

I didn't muster the courage to open the Cliff one! The Daniel O'Donnell one was wishing a happy Christmas. As I promptly closed the card after that; I didn't get the chance to see if he actually sang.

Ever since I saw that card Daniel O'Donnell has been haunting me! He's been on TV here in Ireland (someone pass me the sick bucket) and mum got a DO'D CD for Christmas! I'm trapped in some sort of Daniel O'Donnell nightmare! I'm too young to be forced to listen to him. I like stuff like Britney Spears and The Saturdays Help!

TG4 I think. It was a show from some Cathedral in Dublin. The songs were good, I just wasn't keen on him singing them.

true story about my granny

They live in a place called Oldtown, Co. Dublin, middle of nowhere to us from our council estate in Manchester. There was 1 shop, a church, a pub and a water pump, my granny was barred from the bloody pub for fighting. She was 60 odd
