The Corrigan Brothers – Saint Patrick’s Day (Everybody’s Irish)

The Corrigan Brothers – Saint Patrick’s Day (Everybody’s Irish)

The Corrigan Brothers are from a small village in County Tipperary called Puckane but now reside in Ireland’s sporting capital Limerick.

Universal Music, Decca recording artists and the brothers have had huge success on you tube racking up over 7 million hits and have been fortunate enough to play at President Obama’s inauguration following the international chart success of their now famous song “There’s no one as Irish as Barack Obama” – the song which explained the Irish roots of the President.

Their last album “An Irish Man Invented Rock and Roll” has also become a huge favourite anywhere the Irish Communities are based throughout the world.

Gerard, Brian and Donncha Corrigan regularly meet the Irish Diaspora in cities around the world and they have a special affinity for the Irish communities and culture that is so vibrant so far away from Ireland.

That is why they felt it was time for a Saint Patrick’s Day song.

Lead singer Gerard Corrigan explained to Life in Quebec “ A lady called Cynthia Pozzo who is a big Corrigan Brothers fan in the USA wrote to me and advised me that Saint Patrick’s Day needs a new song. We thought it was a great idea and We agreed that a new contemporary song was needed for the best known national holiday in the world, so we got together with internationally renowned song writer Shay Healy and our producer Pete Creighton and came up with Saint Patrick’s Day (Everybody’s Irish). We believed that such a song should be upbeat and not take itself too seriously and that is should have a catchy chorus that will be sung for years to come. We hope that it will.”

Despite over twenty invites to Parades all over the world, Corrigan Brothers will spend Saint Patrick’s day filming in Ireland for a new DVD called” For Folk Sake” which is a humorous view of Irish Folk music with a few original songs as well. Their Song “There’s no one as Irish as Barack Obama” has recently featured in the hit US TV comedy “30 Rock”.

“We wish all of our friends in Quebec and Canada a happy and peaceful Saint Patrick’s day and we look forward to touring in Quebec in 2012”.

Dedicated to all of you, the Irish in Quebec

The Irish Band, Corrigan Brothers who has the International hit “There’s no one as Irish as Barack Obama” have celebrated the greatest holiday in the world in song.

Their new release “Saint Patrick’s Day (Everybody’s Irish)” celebrates Saint Patrick’s Day.

The 40 shades of green are everywhere on Patrrick’s DAY

And teams of Irish dancers step it out again
And out in hot springs arkanasas they always have a ball
When they host the worlds shortest Patricks day parade of all
