Modern St. Patrick’s Day Songs for Your Party

If you’re not into the traditional side of things, listen to some of Ireland’s top hits


With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, you’re bound to have some big plans. Whether those plans include cooking a traditional feast, heading out to bar crawl with your pals, or hosting party at home, it’s nice to have tunes to jam to along the way.

We’ve given you the option of listening to classic Irish songs, and we’ve given you songs fit for a night of drunken debauchery. But perhaps those tunes aren’t up your alley or maybe you’re looking for a really great mash-up of old and new tunes, so we’re adding modern Irish greats to the mix.
