GUEST,Peter Laban Lyr Add: Irish songs about balls, wakes, soirees (102* d) RE: Lyr Add: Irish songs about balls, wakes, soirees 20 Jun 21


'Now, I wonder which other songs about sports and/or fairs would suit and which would not.'

I was a bit worried I was creating a monster there by introducing the Famous Faha Sports but there's enough mayhem to fit it in with the parties and the soirees. The most obvious one The Humours of Donnybrook Fair is probably out as it's more of the 'In praise of' variety but I may be able to think of one or two yet.

Fahalunaghta (Faha for short) is two or three townlands over from where I am living and I pass through there almost daily so that's my excuise for putting it up anyway.

There's probably an argument to be made for including Junior Crehan's 'Gleeson's 1989' for it's description of music, merriment and real life people even though it does not descend into mayhem as most of these songs do.
