St Patricks day celebrations / Irish night

Discussion in 'Films, Music and All Things Artsy' started by polar69, Jan 3, 2013.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Ladeeeeeeeees and gentlemen of the FM and all things artsy forum, a question if I may.

    If you were going to an Irish/St Patrick's day celebration what songs would you expect the band to play ?

    Off the top of my sheleighleigh I can only name the following

    The (wreck of the ) Irish Rover
    Whiskey in the Jar
    The Wild Rover
    Brown Eyed Girl ( yes I know )

    ....and that's about it.

    There must be more ( apart from "Black and Tans" which I don't think would go down well)
     
  2. I wish they would shut the **** up as im sick of all this Oirish shite
