INTRODUCTION by RAYMOND DALY

This book and the contents within present a definitive yet varied collection of Celtic and Irish songs. It is my strong belief, that all songs contained within this book should be recollected to ensure that their value is never lost, and their historical significance is recorded forever in the hearts of all who read and enjoy them. The goal for this project is to reach its target audience and keep that very important facet of Celtic and Ireland’s history and culture alive in song and story.

My first journeys to Glasgow began when I travelled with the Mid Leinster Celtic Supporters Club (which is based in my home town of Tullamore) to support Celtic. From these same journeys my interest and love for Celtic and Irish songs has grown extensively and continues to grow. Prior to the games there is a tremendous atmosphere in Celtic bars around The Gallowgate, The Gorbals and other parts of Glasgow. These premises reverberate to the sounds of The Celtic Song, Willie Maley, The Fields of Athenry, Sean South from Garryowen, The Soldier’s Song and many more famous Celtic and Irish anthems. This atmosphere is electric and carries on to Celtic Park with fans singing with pride throughout the ground. While listening to these songs and the atmosphere they created, my initial concept to compile a songbook was awakened.

“This is a truly excellent publication, very informative, interesting and accurate with a wealth of detail about both Celtic and Ireland. It claims to cover both and does so admirably well, including the lyrics of Irish rebel and Celtic songs which are, as the back cover says “far reaching, educational, and of course, provide a great source of pleasure.”

David Potter, Celtic Historian
