The Parting Glass by University of Dublin, Ireland

I’m part Irish and very proud of the fact (most Irish are, not sure why, but we are all very proud to be Irish).
I’ve recently been going back into our family tree to see what parts of Ireland my Dad’s side of the family came from. And whilst I do my search I’ve been listening to some awesome Irish traditional songs.
This is probably my favorite so far.
The song is called the Parting Glass and it is sung by the chorale group at the University of Dublin in Ireland.
The video links back to their YouTube page. It’s just beautiful.
Do you ears a favor and listen!

    I was seriously just listening to this the other day and I love it! There’s another group that sings it called “The Wailin’ Jennys” and its a beautiful arrangement too.
