Alternative Music from Ireland

Researching alternative music from Ireland surprised me in finding just how many fantastic musicians this country has.  Narrowing down my favorite artists to fit into only a weekly feature was not easy.  I will definitely have to revisit this nation here to share with you some more great artists.  Rock music became a part of Irish music scene in the 60’s when the British Invasion brought this genre to the island.  Van Morrison, Thin Lizzy, U2, The Pogues and Sinead O’Connor are some of the most successful artists to come out of Ireland.
