9 Festive Songs for St. Patrick’s Day


5. Galway Bay

Composed by Frank Fahy in the early 1900s, it was sung to music by Tony Small, and known sometimes as “My Own Dear Galway Bay.” Another version of the music was composed by Dr. Arthur Colahan in 1947 – it is this version Bing Crosby made famous. Many Celtic singers have recorded it since. This version on YouTube has an unusual country western twang.
