Some Irish songs

I went to a comedy club on Friday with Lauren and her friends and one of the comedians made an Irish joke about me. It kind of startled me since I don't think I look particularly Irish. Anyway, I picked out some of the songs that I listened to on my dads record player growing up. All of these have really interesting lyrics if you know much about Irish history. The historical footage in some is fascinating also.
