Irish Folksongs


Airs, Ballads, Ditties, Folksongs, Hymns, Jigs, and Reels of Ireland
Sorted by first line of lyric and title, with title in italics.

Many songs have variations to them. I used the one that I could substantiate with a reference source.
The titles are even worse, mainly in the spelling of names, i.e.,: Brian O'Linn to Bryan O'Lynn.
