#4 Name That Song [Ireland]

And here we are again, with the next round of 'Name That Song'!
First of all, I thought the last round (Reformation) would be hard. Ha! Evidently, not so much!
Look at who won the last round:
Thomas JG
The Authoress
David P
Dave Patrick

Congratulations, guys! Evidently, you really know your reformation hymns ;)

[Please note I am counting those who got all three correct. Several others got most of them right. ]

And now... the next round is the grand Music of Ireland! Most of these are very easy, so you shouldn't have any trouble with them at all.

Comment below, with your answers ;)

[You must NOT look up the lyrics! This is for the memory, not the google ;)]

Number One:

"Raised on songs & stories, heroes of re-known
The passing tales & glories that once was Dublin town
The hallowed halls & houses, the haunting childrens' rhymes
That once was Dublin city...

The years have made me bitter, the gargle dims my brain
'Cause Dublin keeps on changing & nothing stays the same
The Pillar & the Met have gone, the Royal long since pulled down
As the great unyielding concrete makes a city of my town..."

Number Two:

"Oh, the days of the Kerry dancing
Oh, the ring of the piper's tune
Oh, for one of those hours of gladness
Gone, alas, like our youth, too soon!
When the boys began to gather
In the glen of a
summer's night And the Kerry piper's tuning
Made us long with wild delight!
Oh, to think of it Oh, to dream of
Fills my heart with tears!"

Number Three:
"Of all the money that e'er I had,
I spent it in good company.
And all the harm I've ever done,
alas it was to none but me.
And all I've done for want of wit,
to mem'ry now I can't recall;
So fill to me the parting glass,
Good night and joy be to you all."

There you go - start guessing ;)
