    Hi Nick,

    I'm not exactly sure what you mean by Irish "folk" music; there's Traditional music, certainly :)
    Here are a few links from my saved favorites on YouTube. Enjoy! :)

    If you ever manage to find some Irish musicians in a pub, you may get to enjoy a "seisún" (music-playing 'session'). These happen often wherever there's an Irish community - my city has a couple every week.

    @Peachey: Did you watch the video I posted featuring Liam Ó Maonlaí? That was one such session. Good stuff... :-)
