On St. Patrick's after the parade what you want to do is raise a glass in the air and sing all the old songs with all your old friends. You know you do. But, let's face it, your singing isn't the best. If you'd been with good St. Pat back in the day, you could have run the snakes into the sea just by launching into your rendition of "The Fields of Athenry". And St. Patrick may have followed them. So on Saturday get yourself to somewhere where a genuine professional singer has the mic and you can just...ummm...harmonize. And for Irish ballads on Irish ballad day, no better lads than Eddie Delahunt and Bob Reeder.
