**** Bono.

My Bloody Valentine pretty much stomp everything else from Ireland. Stiff Little Fingers are also worth a mention.

You should also check out Altan and Andy Irvine if you want traditional Irish tunes. I also really enjoy Planxty and the Dubliners.Gaelic Storm isn't Irish but they're a nice Celtic band as well.

My favourite Irish folk groups;

Planxty
Dubliners
Irish rovers
the chieftains
Bothy band
Pogues (though if you want to get technical they weren't exactly all Irish natives)

Van Morrison is Ireland's Greatest

Moondance and Astral Weeks are amazing albums

Solas? Seriously? wow, you haven't heard a lot of irish music...

by the way, by Irish music, I don't mean solely traditional Irish music, I mean any band artist that has come out of Ireland: Thin Lizzie, Van Morrison, U2 (just an example urban), Stoat, Simple Kid.... the list goes on. I made one in this thread a while back.

For actual Irish music, I enjoy the Clancy Brothers, the Wolfe Tones, and Dervish. (Probably Dervish the most out of those three because I enjoy more traditional folk music.)
