St. Patrick's Day Special: Donohoe & Grimes' cover of Denis Leary's "Traditional Irish Folk Song"
Fun Fact: On November 21, 1920, Michael Collins' squad of fighters killed 14 British Army officers, police officers and civilians, wounding five. In retaliation, members of British paramilitary group "The Auxiliaries" drove their trucks into Dublin's Croke Park during a soccer match and began randomly shooting into the crowd. 65 people were wounded and 14 were killed, including Tipperary GAA team captain Michael Hogan. This became known as "Bloody Sunday," and was one of the earlier skirmishes in what became the Irish War of Independence. In hindsight, this fact may not fit some people's definition of "fun."
