St Patrick’s Day

15 03 2010

 

Next Wednesday 17 th March, the Irish( and those who are a little bit Irish in their hearts,like me!) will celebrate St Patrick’s day. Remember to wear something green, to drink a Guinness or Murphys( if you are over 18 years old!!) and to sing an Irish song.

Talking about Irish pub songs… how about this one! Dirty Old Town is a song you will hear in any Dublin pub.

This song is by The Dubliners, a mythical Irish band that I have seen live at the Olympia theatre in Dublin city.

Lyrics:

I met my love by the gasworks wallDreamed a dream by the old canal /Kissed my girl by the factory wall /Dirty old town, dirty old town./

  Clouds are drifting across the moon/ Cats are prowling on their beat/ Spring’s a girl in the street at night/ Dirty old town, dirty old town.

  I heard a siren from the docks /Saw a train set the night on fire/ Smelled the spring in the smokey wind /Dirty old town, dirty old town.

  I’m going to make a good sharp axe/ Shining steel tempered in the fire /We’ll chop you down l/ike an old dead tree /Dirty old town, dirty old town.  

Who was St. Patrick? Watch the following documentaries from the History channel and find out.

I love Irish music but what about Irish dancing…it’s just spectacular.

Watch this clip and listen to one of the best Irish bands, the Chieftains and see some real dancing

and if you still have doubts about st Patrick, come to class on Thursday and we’ll have a special activity on St Paddy’s day.. Remember to wear green !
