Irish women

According to Tommy Burns, a musician and broadcaster in New Jersey, when Irish men sing of love,  it's more likely to be about love of country, homeland, town, village, river and whiskey than love of women. What an utterly unromantic lot !
But there are a great number of songs and a number of great songs about Irish women; about a flower from here and a rose from there; about heroines and she-devils and a lot more besides ! Bless 'em all !
