The Irish folk tradition is famous the world over and remains vibrant not only in Ireland but also in Britain, Australia and North America, where it has hugely influenced modern day popular music. This collection of Irish folk songs, each presented with basic musical notation and a short explanation of its context and background, is a perfect introduction to the richness of that tradition. Drawn from all over Ireland, the songs offer a number of recurrent themes familiar to all of us. There are songs of love, or the lack of it, songs about famous people and of times past, of sporting achievement, humour, and yearning for home.
