Every song you never wanted to hear warbled again -- and then some.

You've heard them all a thousand times before in the pub or at a late night hooley … Danny Boy, Biddy Mulligan, The Wild Colonial Boy. You've knocked back your Jemmy with a drop of water or your Vodka and red, breathed deeply and then tried desperately to remember the opening lines to your party piece. But all that comes out is 'la la di da di da la la'. Fear no more. They're all here in all their glory -- every word, every line, every chorus of the most popular Irish songs ever to be performed through that happy, misty haze of alcohol. The only thing we can't guarantee is your singing. But don't worry. Everyone will be so plastered they won't notice!
