mm St. Patrick's Day favourites (99* d) RE: St. Patrick's Day favourites 05 Mar 99

Surely the songs to sing on St Patrick's Day would be songs about Irish saints?

In Ireland we usually sing the hymn "Hail Glorious Saint Patrick", which starts:

Hail Glorious Saint Patrick, dear saint of our isle On us thy dear children, send down a sweet smile..."

to which the saint invariably replies not by hailing but by raining heavily on the parade.

Or what about "In Glendalough lived a young saint, in odour of sanctity dwelling, an old-fashioned odour which now, you seldom or never are smelling".

You'll find the first in any collection of Irish hymns, the second was recorded by The Dubliners.
