Irish Bands

Some time during the early 1990s, I realised that a large number of the bands I really loved were Irish. I think this was purely a coincidence, as most didn't sound particularly "Irish". But it seemed a fertile time for great, mostly alternative, rock bands from Ireland.

So here is a list of those bands and my favourite songs they did. In no particular order.
