Snakes, shamrocks, and cabbage – it’s that time of the year to revel in a bit of Irish fun!

With haunting live performances by Celtic singers, the precision footwork of Irish stepdance, radio hits in all genres, and the ballads, jigs and drinking songs, there’s something for anyone who wants to feel a little extra Irish for the day. Keep reading for songs I often use at different types of St. Patrick’s Day events — scroll to the bottom to listen to the whole playlist on YouTube!
