Irish Kids Songs and Rhymes

Plus Many Beloved Traditional Songs

Irish Kids Songs and Rhymes Cover

Ireland!  Emerald green isle… land of shamrocks, fairies and leprechauns.  Home of St. Patrick, Yeats and James Joyce… Rolling green hills and, of course, potatoes!

In this book we’ve gathered over 60 Irish children’s songs and rhymes.  Many have commentary sent to us by our correspondents who are immersed in the traditions and culture of Ireland.

There’s not always a sharp distinction between songs sung by children and by adults. So we’ve included a sampling of some of the most popular Irish traditional songs.  We’ve also included examples of Ireland’s heritage of very moving ballads and lullabies.

Many of these songs and rhymes are in English, but we’re proud to also include several that are Gaelic.  In those cases we provide English translations.

We hope this book will help foster a love of Irish songs and culture all over the world!

This book includes:

  • Irish songs, rhymes, lullabies, and carols
  • In English, and several in Gaelic with English translations
  • Commentary from ordinary people about what the songs have meant to their lives
  • Web links to recordings and sheet music
  • Illustrations

You’ll find over 60 Irish favorites, including:

  • Sally Go Round The Moon
  • Too Ra Loo Ra Loo Ral
  • Michael Finnigan
  • May the Road Rise Up to Meet You
  • One, Two, Three O’Leary
  • It’s a Long Way to Tipperary
  • How Many Miles to Dublin
  • Danny Boy

“May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.”
