I had hoped to hear was more traditional irish music, not the stuff I hear everyday.

Hehe...that's just funny to me because I probably hear traditional Irish music everyday. My parents = *big* fans. My childhood was filled with as much from the Chieftains and Clancy Brothers as Disney movies and nursery rhymes. :)

Oh same here! My grandparents were born and raised in Ireland so they loved to play it and my mom loved to play it but it would have been really neat to hear it over there.

The Chieftains are fantastic. :)

I'm guessing you're of Irish heritage yourself? I am as well, and I absolutely ADORE Irish folk music, it pretty much made up 90% of my CD collection when I was a teenager. :P As a matter of fact, U2 just started out as one of my "Hibernophile" bands, back when I was 15.

So jealous you got to go to Ireland, that's amazing! I was there on holiday in 1997...absolutely gorgeous. And it's funny that you should post about this, cos I was only recently wondering to myself how people from Ireland actually see U2. Like, do they consider them one of their best exports, or do they roll their eyes and groan if someone dares mention their name? I dunno, it'd be interesting to find out...

Yep - 75% Irish, 25% Ukrainian. Although, my mom's mom was from Sligo, so she kind of cancelled out most of the Ukrainian influence. In fact, the first memory I have of U2 was finding out they were from Ireland when I was 4; I was under the impression at that age that the *only* music from Ireland was traditional Celtic.

I'm not really sure how the Irish feel about U2. I was so busy trying to find castles (and oftentimes failing!) that I kind of forgot to ask. :) But I *loved* it there; it was a little chilly for August, but it was so beautiful. My absolute favorite part of my trip was when we visited Galway and the Aran Islands.
