24 hrs of St. Patrick’s Day 14: “A Nation Once Again”


In honor of St. Patrick’s Day I’m posting one of my favorite Irish songs every hour.

14. “A Nation Once Again” by The Wolfe Tones

Irish voters once gamed a BBC poll to get this declared the world’s most popular song.  It’s certainly stirring, and I always liked it as a kid when my folks were fans of the Wolfe Tones, although I find the band’s political extremism off-putting these days.
