I do love the Dropkick Murphy's though I rather more appreciated their earlier albums. I think they were more edgy-actually punk. Their sound now has changed into something lighter.

The Chieftains
The Dubliners
The High Kings
The Irish Descendants
The Irish Rovers


The Tossers
Flogging Molly
The Dreadnoughts
The Young Dubliners
The Mahones
The Pogues
The Real McKenzies
Street Dogs (some Irish influence but more punk than Irish)

Most of these are traditional Irish folk or Celtic Punk. Hope it helps anyone wanting to get into either of them.

Yes, those are some big names in Irish music, MofkA ! I notice that two are modern rock bands with their own songs, and two bands play more traditional folk songs. I prefer the more traditional artists myself.
