Traditional Irish Love Songs – 8 Favourites (#807)

In this week’s episode share what we consider to be eight of the best traditional Irish love songs of all time! This is, of course, a very personal and subjective collection – and I’m sure you will agree with some and disagree with many.

I have used the input of many of our readers and Green Room members down through the years and many of the these songs are ones that were recommended again and again.

I’m recording this episode just short of Valentine’s Day – but think that this is a collection of songs that you will enjoy at any time of year. See what you think!
