The impression I get is that they're not *that* well loved in Ireland. I think Bono said something about it on 60 minutes, the Irish attitude toward celebrity. I didn't listen to much radio while I was over there, but I agree, it wasn't great. I would expect that there would be very little folk music, though--there isn't much American folk music on the radio here!

If it is the case that they are not that well loved, there are still quite a lot of people (at least in Dublin) that cash in on tourists' love for them. ;)

I didn't really mean just American folk music. I was more under the impression from other people I know/stuff I've read online and in magazines, that Ireland is really receptive to singer/songwriters in general (first country to really embrace David Gray's White Ladder, currently giving a lot of love to Josh Ritter, for example).

Oops, I assumed you meant Irish traditional music when you said folk music. I am going to be living there for the next four years, so hopefully I'll be able to find something on the radio!
