I have to do a set of about a dozen songs at a party for Paddy's. I don't have a great vocal range and I ain't Irish. Any ideas?

Definitly NOT Danny Boy. Depending on the party some of the chorus songs that everyone will join in:- Athenry; Black Velvet Band; Leaving of Liverpool; Gather up the pots; the Boys from Killibegs; Connemara Cradle Song; and then St. Patrick was a gentleman; the Rakes of Mallow; perhaps Roddy McCauley or Sean South; the Town I loved so well; Dicley Riley; Star of the County Down; Song for Ireland. These are all on our play list for the day.

I second do NOT play Danny Boy, that's a funeral song. I would add... Finnegan's Wake, Jug of Punch, Cruiscin Lan, Wild Mountain Thyme, if you can pull it off in your vocal range, Four Green Fields, and though it isn't Scottish, the Queen of Argylle is always a hit.

See if your public library has the Celtic Fakebook by the Hal Leonard Company. It's about two inches thick and offers many choices, with melody, words and chords in one place.

If not that book, look for others.

No "Danny Boy"? Well, if you had the instrumentation, you could always try THIS version!:
