Nate Morefield emailed some St Patrick's Day pictures: "Hey Marc, pictures are still trickling in, but attached are a few from 3/17 and 3/18. In terms of funny material, maybe our tune Another Drink might qualify?  It's about a guy who's missing his ex, but mostly because he needs her to fix him another drink...  Just a thought." Ben Doran emailed a St Pat's photos: "Hello Marc, thanks for the invite to share photos. Here's a couple from the Friday night Wild Hog in the Woods Folk Collective's St. Patrick's Bash -  -  featuring myself, Lisa Johnson (as Leafy Greens), and friends Casey Day and Greg Matysik. And for funny songs? We there's Makem/Spain  Bros. "Mr. La DeDaDeDum", but a big bully for you if you can find the rare, "The Second Hand Trouser's I bought in Belcoo" written by Martin McConnell, I believe (brother to the excellent columnist/story teller, Cormac McConnell). Slan go foill." Melissa Wade of Wild Blue Yonder emailed some photos: "Great to hear from you, Marc! We did have a good  -  and very busy  -  St. Patrick's Day! We played three shows in three days, traveling through wind, rain and cold to several different towns. Happy belated birthday to you, as well!! Attached are a few pics from our celebrations. The posed shot is at Anakeesta Mountaintop Adventure Park in Gatlinburg, where we played on St. Patrick's Day. Taking our Irish Celtic music high up in the Great Smoky Mountains to entertain for the holiday was most fitting and special. And while the howling wind and blowing rain were less than pleasant, they gave us the sense of actually being in Ireland! Thanks again for writing, and for all you do for Celtic musicians! We love your show." Sean Malloy of Band o'Brothers emailed a photo: "Hey Marc!  Happy Belated Birthday & St. Patrick’s Day!  Hope you had a wonderful time and a wonderful gig with your daughters. Attached is a picture of Band O’Brothers as we prepared to roll through the streets of New Haven in the St. Patrick’s Day parade.  We had a blast playing out songs for the joyful people along the parade route, and after we completed the parade route we even stopped our float outside a neighborhood bar to play a few songs for the revelers.  We had a great day!"

The poem is titled “A Returned Soldier’s Lament” I’ve renamed the song 1924 partly because I have made small changes to the text  -  and have added a verse,  but also the date is really significant to the meaning of the words.  The poem references WW1 from that date: being 6 years after the war ended, 9 years after the majority of the ANZAC troops joined the war and 8 years after their greatest involvement and losses both at Gallipoli and all along the Western front. Oh  -  and it’s going to be on our next duo album that will be out sometime this year.  Caveat warning, however; -   we’re so busy doing a load of other things  -  including the beginnings of a new Purcells Polyphonic Party album as well as festivals and folk clubs and recording for TV and games…. that any plan for launching is going to have to be quite  vague. 44:20 - Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer "1924" 50:12 - THANKS 51:48 - Paddyman "The Best Pub Party in the World" from One for the Road 54:36 - Kellys Wayke "Walk the Mile" from Kellys Wayke 58:10 - the commoners "What's Your Whiskey For" from What's Your Whiskey For 1:01:42 - Michael Maloney "'Round the Mountains of Mourne" from January Hopeful 1:05:32 - CLOSING 1:07:11 - The Druids "South Australia" 1:09:35 - CREDITS The Irish & Celtic Music Podcast was produced by Marc Gunn, The Celtfather and our Patrons on Patreon.

Scott McCreary replied to the Celtic Music Magazine: "Hey Marc I listen to the Irish and Celtic music podcast while whittling and or wood working, cutting the grass in my two acre yard or at break time at my job at Amazon. This St. Patrick’s day I don’t really have plans but will definitely have corned beef for supper. I may get ambitious and make a coddle or stew at some point. I have always heard that you don’t choose Ireland. Ireland chooses you and that’s my case. I am an Irish descendent but have never been to Ireland. I eat up all I can about it I.e. the language, music, movies and pictures and culture. I celebrate Ireland every day " Marguerite Kearns replied: "I am just listening to the content of your songs and music. Doing nothing else. Some things don't fit well with multitasking...you fit into that category. Onward" Michael Corbett emailed: "Hi Marc! This is Michael from Seldom Sober.  You were a great supporter of ours when we released our last CD in 2019.  I'm sorry to tell you that Colleen, the other half of Seldom Sober, is having health problems. It would really lift her spirits for you to play one of her tune sets.  Since our last CD was 4 years ago it doesn't get much attention anymore, but she loves hearing that we're being played around the world.  We were actually big in New Zealand when the CD first came out.  Just let me know which episode it's on.  She knows I listen to your podcast, so I'll just tell her I heard it Thanks for your consideration!  Please keep up the good work!  You sponsored the main stage at the Savannah Irish Festival in 2019, and we appreciate that!”

I make tshirt quilts and this one is #3 of 5. I love listening to Celtic music when I sew and especially on Thursdays with a new podcast! Thanks a bunch for all you share with us!" Solange Benoit commented on Facebook about Kilrush: "Love these guys and gal! Their friendship and genuine respect for each other, shows on stage. Individually talented but together, simply amazing!" Mary Beth Carty commented on Facebook: "Sometimes you just gotta go to the fair, and when you're there, you gotta... move through it Thanks for the spin, it's an honour!" Dan C sent a message on Patreon: "Hey Marc. Heard your request for new bands and I feel the Drowsy Lads would a excellent band to feature. I’ve heard them play on the main stages of the Dublin and Milwaukee Irish Music festivals. I personally sent them a submission form from your website and hoping they fill it out because their music is great. Thanks for all the hard work you do for the podcast. Cheers my friend" Bill M messaged on Patreon: "Hello Mark, You have asked for feedback hundreds of times over the past 15+ years.  But there was something about your 534th request  that moved me to type you this message. I am among the listeners who you once called – “the original iTunes 1,000”.  I think I started listening to your podcast at the same time I discovered iTunes. Figuring out how to download your podcast is the basically all I know how to do with my iPhone.  I am not any good with this social networking stuff.  In fact, I am not even certain if I am on the right website right now.  This message will likely shoot pass the Serenity and end up in the nihility of empty space.  But I will keep typing in the event this message somehow ends up on your desk. I literally listen to every one of your podcast at least once a year and more likely two or three times a year.  Before you get a restraining order, let me explain. I have a small goat dairy with about 15 goats.  I play your podcast for several hours a day, several days per week.  I download between 10 to 20 podcast every other week.  My sound system loops them over and over again, Monday through Saturday.  On Sunday I put on a playlist of religious music for the kids. Your biggest fan is my #1 goat, MayBelle.  If I can figure it out, I will attach a picture of her.  You might say I am writing you in her behalf.  MayBelle really likes the lovely voices of women singers.  Sometimes you catch her taking a pause to listen to an angelic voice.  She will stand in the doorway of the barn, where the music is the loudest, and sway back and forth, just listening to the music. And sometimes a song will make MayBelle throw a hoof my way.  MayBelle listens to your podcast while I am milking her.  She normally stands peacefully; but when you play some punk rock Celtic music; the change in tone startles her and she starts kicking. So since you keep asking for feedback, here it comes.  You might want to consider doing a shout - out before you start playing the more heavy, rock - and - roll music.  Say something like  -  “Hey MayBelle, here comes a head banger!”  This way she can go to her happy place for a while, or at least I get a cue to watch out for flying hooves. When I am not around the barn, I like to listen to your Pub Songs podcast.  In fact I am listening to Sci - Fi Pub Songs Podcast #265 as I type this message.   I don't play these podcasts in the paddock because some of the songs and stories have adult content that are not suitable for kids.  {just kidding  -  maybe} A little more feedback.  I really like the way you link the singers to your podcast.  You introduced me to the Wicked Tinkers, Boston Blackhorn,  Irish Rovers, Three Mile Stone –  just to name a few.  Your podcast makes it easy to find their websites and download songs for my eclectic collection of Celtic tunes.  I even downloaded some of the headbangers that make MayBelle's ears bleed. You have given me and my goats so many hours of wonderful and delightful music.   From all of us at MT Acres, we say – thank you, thank you, thank you......"

I celebrate my Celtic culture most Sundays  and every second Thursday at  local Irish sessions where I play bodhran, banjo or guitar.  One of my own songs has become a session regular and is a firm favourite of the patrons at the pubs where we have our sessions. Cheers Marc, PS I love the podcast." Mattie Dalton emailed: "This year, I will not be in the parade.  My plan at this point, is to cook a fantastic meal and have all the kids and grandkids over to share and enjoy their heritage! I'd love to hear all your music or anything you put out. Love you kiddo!!" Ben Doran emailed: "While listening to the podcast, I am either doing light chores or culling through emails. Never too far from the speaker, or the playlist; so I can highlight songs/artists to take a further/deeper listen to. I am going to be playing three shows on St. Patrick's Day, two with Ar Ais Aris, and end the night with a great Irish songs and tunes concert for the Wild Hog in the Woods Folk Cooperative. Then, after all that: either a nap OR some Bailey's and Jameson, then a nap. Circling back: rehearsing, rehearsing this "holiday" season. Learning some new tunes, polishing up some old ones. Enjoying the fellowship while playing!" Teresa Finley of IrishFest Atlanta sent photos from the attendance at the Atlanta St Patrick's Day parade.

Ellen Ellis emailed: "Marc, I would love a St. Patrick’s Day show. I will be celebrating St Patrick’s day by playing all Irish music on my radio program called “The Green Willow Show” on WVUD 91.3 at  the University of Delaware, on Wednesday the 15th at 8PM eastern time. I can be streamed in realtime at www.wvud.org. On The 17th I will probably drink a little Bushmills and watch The Banshees of Inisherin.

For St. Patrick's Day I am watching my grandkids.  Will celebrate with a Black & Tan after they are put to bed. 3. I celebrate Celtic culture by going out of my way to find artists of the culture and give them a special listen.  That is where your Podcast comes in handy. You do great work.  Keep it up." Dennis McCarthy emailed: "Love the show.  Been listening for a few years. I most always listen while driving. I play the bagpipes so I am very busy during the month of March, especially on Saint Patrick’s Day.  The pipe and drum bands that I am in have been playing at many local festivals and private parties in the Saint Augustine area. Thank you very much" Ellen Mandeville replied: I often do housework or go for a walk while listening. I plan to cook potato leek soup and drink Guinness on St. Patrick's day. We'll be listening to Celtic music while enjoying our St. Paddy's day meal.

I hope that you have a great time and fun shows." Eric Guarin (gwa - reen) emailed a question: "Hi Mark, over time the Podcast has included bands from literally all over playing a pretty wide variety of music. Some of it strays quite far from trad pub music - I'm not complaining, it's all great, but it does make me wonder: How do you decide what to play and if it is "Celtic" enough? Cheers,"

TRAVEL WITH CELTIC INVASION VACATIONS Every year, I take a small group of Celtic music fans on the relaxing adventure of a lifetime. We don't see everything. Instead, we stay in one area. We get to know the region through its culture, history, and legends. You can join us with an auditory and visual adventure through podcasts and videos. In 2023, we’re going on a Celtic Invasion of County Mayo in Ireland. Here are four things you can do to learn more about Grace O’Malley, the famous Pirate Queen: Grace O'Malley's Castle in Rockfleet: This 15th - century castle was once the stronghold of Grace O'Malley, also known as Gráinne Mhaol. Visitors can explore the ruins and imagine what life was like for the legendary pirate queen.Clare Island: This island off the coast of County Mayo was the base of operations for Grace O'Malley and her followers. Visitors can tour the island, visit the remains of O'Malley's castle, and learn about her life and legacy.The Westport House and Gardens: This historic house and estate was once the home of the Browne family, who were involved in the capture and imprisonment of Grace O'Malley. Today, visitors can tour the house, explore the grounds and gardens, and learn about its history and connections to O'Malley.The Museum of Country Life in Castlebar: This museum is dedicated to showcasing the history and culture of rural Ireland. It includes exhibits on the lives of the people of County Mayo, including Grace O'Malley and her connection to the area.

Mari Voipio commented on Facebook: "Let’s just say that my utility/laundry room isn’t ready for its closeup… But Celtic music makes all the sorting and folding and putting away a bit less boring." John Sharkey White, II sent a message on Patreon: "The danger of using the WayBack Machine and listening to older podcasts, is that I'm discovering bands that for whatever reason didn't stand out the first time, but now I'm loving! Is Bad Haggis together anymore? Can't find much on the inter webs. Keep up the excellent work!" Molly emailed a computer picture: "Hello Mark et al, really enjoying the Irish & Celtic Music podcast – thank you! The website mentioned an interest in Sci Fi & that you sometimes write music for sci fi themes, so I am curious  -  have you ever written music relating to the TV Sci - Fi series Firefly (2002/2003)? Your podcast asked for a picture of what we are working on while listening – well, here it is – the ever - exciting operations guide for our microwave reactor (non - nuclear). It’s a gallop of a read! My company uses these reactors to manufacture materials that will hopefully reduce the environmental footprint of batteries and other items. I would love sometime to join you all on the Celtic Invasion tour!  It comes down to the usual – time and money. 😊 Best regards," Check out the In the Verse, Pop Culture Songwriting podcast.

Rob emailed Greetings from the Snowy North: "Good day Celt Father, I just to want to say thank you for the amazing musical offerings, it makes shoveling the winter snow a much more pleasant experience, and to ask for a favor. After replacing my phone some apps did not make the transfer successfully. Since than I have a song stuck in my head that I cannot track down and I swear that it was from an episode of the podcast. I did some digging and matched up the lyrics to "The Barroom Girls" by Gillian Welch but I can not find the version that played on the podcast. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you again for a wonderful podcast and thank you again for the motivational snow shoveling music." Daphne Arthur of the Homespun Ceilidh Band sent holiday greetings last month: "I’ve been saving up all the Christmas - themed episodes of music podcasts until the actual start of Christmastide, so I’ll have them to listen to during the twelve days, so on the first day of Christmas, I was listening to #586 while waiting for my after - Christmas - dinner tea to steep, and making sure Guillaume didn’t accidentally burn his tail on my teeny tiny, improvised Advent wreath.  Enjoying the music, as always! Merry Christmas to you and yours!" Leti and Rodolfo emailed: "The best time to listen to Celtic music is ...during breakfast! Hi Marc, This is Leti and Rodolfo from Madrid, Spain. We always listen to your podcasts while we have our banana and oats pancake breakfast on weekends. It has become a kind of a ritual and we really enjoy the music and the food before going out for a walk in the country. Keep up the good work. Thanks a million!"

I've been listening for several months now and I love the music. Thanks for introducing me to some great celtic music." Brian McReynolds emailed some photos: "This is Brian McReynolds. What I was doing today while listening was participating in a 5k Turkey Trot. Your podcast even had me skipping  along after the 2 mile mark. Here is a few photos I took during the run. " Shel O'Toole responded regarding music books for Celtic Guitar: "Hi Marc, Two books that were recommended are Celtic Guitar by Glen Weiser and The Irish DADGAD Guitar Book. I haven’t checked out either of them but they both seem to be widely used. I was listening to show 581 and someone asked about books for Celtic Guitar.   I’m having a catch up day, this is the third podcast for the day (I’m up to date again). I also remembered to email one of the bands We Banjo 3 and tell them how I first heard them here and now I follow them on Soundcloud.  I love their sound.  The song Hummingbird is superb. Thanks as always for your fabulous show.  Is there any way I can make a one off contribution?  I went to patreon but I don’t want to make a weekly subscription.  I’d rather just make a one - off contribution each year.  Is that possible? Cheers Marc, have an awesome weekend."
