    It's a nice song about drinking and good times! The title is roughly"fill up the jug". Here's a translation I found, not a very good one but you can see the jist:

    Boys, O boys, O boys, I always admired you
    You surely amused the lassies and put heart in any gathering.
    When I recall the gallants, all gathered on the Fair Hill,
    Winking at the bonny ones and whispering so smoothly.
    So fill us up the cruiskeen and keep it full!

    All ye lovely maidens, all into the alehouse;
    Have a sup of the malt juice to put life in heart's core.
    We'll drink and we'll sing and we'll have heigho time.
    We'll be merry, mettlesome; to hell with life's cares.
    So fill us up the cruiskeen and keep it full!

    All the merry company, homing from the fair,
    Joking and blethering, seeking out our chance.
    At length every buck goes off arm in arm with his sweetheart,
    Down the hearher brae, whistling free and easy.
    So fill us up the cruiskeen and keep it full!

    How did you come to be living in Dublin by the way? That seems very far away!

    My da's side of the family came to the states and did well so one by one six out of his ten brothers and sisters headed across the pond.Some stops along the way but ended up settling in the northeast.I've dual citizenship and want to go back to Ireland where I belong.Maybe when my wee ones are older and the like,my wife wants to as well so eventually.

    Please be gentle, I hardly know any Irish folk artists or songs, these two song are very dear to me:





    But really, thanks for this thread, I really wanted to find some good Irish folk music but I didn´t know where to start.

    Anyhow, I really love some more gentle and melancholic songs, that´s probably why I love those two songs that much.

    Also, I heard this one recently:

    Great stuff chara, The Parting Glass is one of the very best. Have to say, I think this is now my favourite (after it being posted in this thread).



    Danny Boy is also a brilliant song, English words set to an old Irish tune:



    That Chieftains track is great too, love to see that sort of mix of old and new artists. Thanks for sharing mate! Glad you are liking the music in the thread too :)

    Powerful song, in rugby it's associated with Munster...whos head coach and legend as a player just died suddenly last week.
    Here's my team...and usually huge rivals (all the Irish provinces are), singing it in honour of him:
