Just see in the paper today there's a free Mary Black CD in this weekend's Irish Mail on Sunday - looks like it'll be worth a listen - as it has her most famous tracks on it - thought i'd spread the love!

I live in the Clonskeagh area and play piano and keyboards and some vocals. Would love to hook up with others to practice trad songs with a view to playing around town, (boolavogue, fields of A. foggy D.) etc. Any thing from a boughran to uileann pipes would be great! Email me at CJ

Wow, I had a list of a dozen or so links to add, but they're all up already. Fantastic!
I'd add for concertinas specifically, although it runs the gamut from Irish all the way to English styles.

Orion My karma just ran over your dogma

Just started learning Mandolin last week - have played fiddle (poorly) in the past and was recommended for lots of tunes. They're all in ABC format.

I can't get the hang of ABC notation myself as I grew up reading music so use ABCExplorer to convert them to sheet.

#42 can be a great source of information, especially for getting songs lyrics
