Danny Boy

Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer’s gone, and all the flowers are dying
‘Tis you, ’tis you must go and I must bide.
But come ye back when summer’s in the meadow
Or when the valley’s hushed and white with snow
‘Tis I’ll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.
But when he come, and all the flowers are dying
If I am dead, as dead I well may be
You’ll come and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an “Ave” there for me.
And I shall hear, tho’ soft you tread above me
And all my grave will warm and sweeter be
For you will bend and tell me that you love me
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me.


Irish Music Boxes Make Great Gifts

Irish Music Boxes

Looking for the perfect Irish gift idea? I absolutely love these Irish music boxes from They have several different options including the one with the Celtic harp shown above. Others feature hearts and green clovers.

Even more importantly, the Irish theme is carried through to the music inside the boxes. You can customize your music box, choosing from songs like:

  • Danny Boy
  • Irish Wedding Song
  • Irish Lullaby (Too Ra Loo Ra)

With over 300 songs to choose from, you will be sure to find one that perfectly fits the gift recipient.

The price of the music boxes ranges depending upon the type, but you can get a really nice one for around $100. If you are looking to spend more on the gift, consider purchasing a small piece of Irish jewelry such as Claddagh earrings to include in the box. It would make a wonderful gift not only for Christmas but for a new baby, graduation, or even a wedding. A music box is also a wonderful keepsake that can be passed down from generation to generation as a small token of the Irish heritage.
