I have partnered up with University of Notre Dame graduate, John Tabis, to write and record a number of football tailgating songs for the students, the alumni and the "subway fans", to add a new dimension to the fans' support of their great and noble Notre Dame football team. John and I are very excited about our first album of eight tailgating songs, many of which are lyrics joined to some very familiar Irish melodies. As a bonus, we have added "Danny Boy" from my album "Songs by a Winter's Hearth" and "I'm a Rover" from "ÓMáille". The entire album or the songs individually are available for download below (scroll down). You can also order a physical CD from the Notre Dame bookstore -- you will find a link below. 

We hope you will enjoy our selection of rollicking "Fighting Irish" tailgating songs and tell all of your friends, especially those you know are fans of our great University of Notre Dame football team.

On behalf of John and myself, I'd like to thank you all for checking out our song selection and we'll all sing a cheer for "Her Loyal Sons"

Best regards,

Ken O'Malley

Forever Irish: Tailgating Songs in the Irish Tradition

In cart Not available Out of stock

Our friend Ken O'Malley's new album of Fighting Irish Tailgating Tunes, entitled "Forever Irish", has arrived! It's a pretty awesome addition to the ND catalog of songs - perfect for a tailgate, gamewatch, party, or wherever/whenever you feel like listening to some ND Football and Celtic/Irish-inspired tunes.

These aren't meant to be new 'anthems' for ND, or a replacement for the classic tunes of yore. Rather, it's a pretty laid back album designed to make for good tailgating music - the artist isn't really taking himself too seriously here, so please don't either. It's just a fun product designed to fill a hole for Irish fans - Irish Tailgating Music Sweetness.

Ken has also included two bonus tracks from his own CDs: the well-beloved "Danny Boy" and the rousing "I'm a Rover". Go Irish! --- John Tabis
