Ireland in Song is a live show that takes the most famous Irish ballads that are loved worldwide and explores the roots and the stories behind the song.

The show cleverly intertwines music, history and the fine arts of Irish dance and storytelling to create a wonderful evening of lively entertainment. Sing along on this musical treasure hunt that unveils the sadness, the longing, the joy and all of the emotions that infuse these beautiful, timeless songs and their place in the history of Ireland. Ireland in Song, the TV show debuted July 2013 on PBS and is currently thrilling passengers aboard transatlantic flights on Aer Lingus, the national airline of Ireland.
