    Always liked Irish Music

    Sounds were great and what I would expect from the Irish Tenors. I miss the original group with Tynan and McDermott, but this group was great.

    A great Irish selection of songs

    I truly enjoy the Irish Tennors. However, this is the first CD I've purchase but won't be the last. I simply enjoy Irish music, and the wonderful singing of tennors.
