Irish Songs Related to the Famine

At the November 19, 2017, fundraiser, Michael McCormack made a presentation on the history of Irish Music over the years. He was accompanied by John Corr who took the time to sing the songs through out the presentation.

Based on the presentation, we have selected three songs which we feel represent the issues of the famine. Click on each of the song titles below to see a page about each one:

Danny Boy

Fields of Athenry

The Ballad of John Gordon

Lyrics of Irish Songs from Donal O'Shaughnessy
