My Irish Punk band are The Radiators from Space. They don't play a blend of Celtic music and Punk (well not on their debut album TV Tube Heart). They are more of the original "back to the basic of Rock and Roll" style of Punk Rock. They quote Nut Rocker by B.Bumble & The Stingers in the Television Screen intro. It's like only a few bars but interestingly Punk bands do that, play an intro to one song then break into their own song.

Interesting thing about Irish/Celtic Punk is so many bands who play it are, well, not Irish. Plenty of Americans, Canadians and Australians, but if you look, there are Serbian, German, Norwegian ... it's all over the place, dude. Just like the Irish!
Orthodox Celts are a Serbian band that play Celtic music.

Black 47 will blow your socks off, they are like a cross between Prefab Sprouts and Celtic music. This band is a dream come true for you.
