Thread Name: Help Choose 20 Most Popular Irish Songs
Subject: RE: HELP CHOOSE 20 MOST POPULAR IRISH SONGS
I seem to have made the mistake of posting to the first thread Ray started; naturally, this second one, started a few minutes later, is the one that everybody who didn't have their spectacles on immediately went for.

I asked one question, which I think is quite important: is this "CD compilation" for your own amusement only, or is it a commercial venture? If it's just a private hobby thing, then you don't really need to worry about whether or not the material is genuinely Irish, or about its copyright status. If you intend to sell the result, though, you need to do some careful background work, as others have already pointed out.
