WHEN PUTTING THIS collection together, I was torn between including only songs which did really originate from Ireland, and songs which were commonly associated with, or considered to have some connection with Irish music. This connection may simply be that they are often performed by "Irish" bands and again this is a problematic definition. However, as the main purpose is to provide the songs that site visitors are looking for, I have opted to also include many songs in the "associated" category, I hope this does not offend too many or cause you to grind your teeth when you look through the list of included songs below. These transcriptions are made by many different individuals from all over the world for their own research and instruction and as such should not be considered definitive "official" versions or representative of any particular artist or performance. They are being shared on this site for educational purposes only, please see our copyright page for more info.

Should you need a print-out of the song, PDF versions (without banners or adverts) are available from the link at the bottom of each song page.
