NOTRE DAME CD: "FOREVER IRISH": Ken and his partner, Notre Dame graduate John Tabis, have written a number of rollicking tailgating songs in support of the most famous “Irish” football team in America, the “Fightin’ Irish” of the University of Notre Dame. These traditional Irish song melodies, blending a mix of football chanting and beer toasting, give the Notre Dame fans even more to cheer about.

This rousing collection of "Fighting Irish" tailgating songs (and two bonus tracks) outsold all other CDs in the campus bookstore and catalog in its first month of release. For more information (and how you can get a copy) talk to Ken at a show or go to www.kenomalley.com/notredameforeverirish.cfm

This is a must have collectible for any Notre Dame fan and will make a terrific gift for those who live the dream that is Notre Dame football. Go Irish!
