Jug of Punch
A jug was and still is the best for drinking punch out of. As they say, the water and the spirits mix better. This version even includes a rendition of Beethovan's 'Ode to Joy'. Yea, Beethovan was Irish on his mother's side.

Patriot Game
The story of Fergal O'Hanlon from Ballybay, Co Monaghan, who tried to abolish the border between the Six Counties and the Republic. Killed at the age of 17. Undoubtedly one of the best ballads ever to come out of the Irish struggles.

Satisfied
Beautiful song written by Andrew for a Celis Bock summer contest in 1999. It did not win the contest, but it continues to win many hearts.

Big Strong Man
Big Strong man is a song written in the middle of the 20th century that very much dates itself with references to the Lusitania, Jack Dempsey, and Mae West.

Danny Boy
This song was written by an Englishman around the turn of the 20th century using an old Irish aire. It was popularized in vaudeville by the Irish Americans and soon became a St. Patrick's Day favorite.

Bog Down in the Valley
A fun sing-along. Andrew learned our version from his dad which replaces 'O-ro' with 'Way-ho'. And Andrew is the Master of this song going faster beyond all believe-ability, but believe it!
