Marc Gunn Kylemore AbbeyWhile Arthur's Day has been around for a while, it is only in the last few years that Halfway to St. Patrick's Day has become a regular holiday for Celtic musicians. So at present, there are no Halfway to St. Patrick's Day songs. No doubt in the years to come, that will change.

If you want great music for your Halfway to St. Patrick's day celebrations, you can start with traditional Irish songs. Below are my pick of the Top 10 Irish songs for the holiday. If you follow the link to my Irish Song Lyrics directory, you'll also find the lyrics and you'll be able to listen to the song as well.

Top 10 Lyrics for Halfway to St. Patrick's Day Songs

1. "Danny Boy"

Quite ironically, an English lawyer added lyrics to a great Irish melody. Thus was born the quintessential Irish American song. You'll hear this song in Ireland more than any other song.

2. Wild Rover

I think this song has been covered and parodied by more people than any other Irish song in the world. It's fun with easy to sing-along chorus. It's beyond catchy. It's wild!
