Irish artists?

One of my friends is graduating in December. She is Irish American and we have an on going joke about my love for U2. For her graduation present, I want to make her a mix cd of Irish bands and solo artists. So far I have:

U2
The Cranberries
Sinead O'Conner
Van Morisson
The Corrs
The Virgin Prunes
Enya (If I really need one more artist)

What other fairly popular groups are Irish?

Only Dave King is Irish in Flogging Molly, it's a questionable inclusion.

My vote is for the Pogues. Though Shane McGowan spent most of his childhood in England, he was born in Ireland, and returned there as an adult. And the Pogues' music is obviously Irish.

I recommend
"If I Should Fall From Grace with God"
"Fairytale of New York"
"Dirty Old Town"
"The Sick Bed of Cuchulain"

Check out the Greatest Irish Bands cd.
(It even comes with a bonus dvd with a Sightings Of Bono short film )

Yeah, I know....

But they are "artists", whether we like it or not...

Yes, but they don't need to share space with the likes of Van Morrison and the Pogues. If one had to do something with them, I'd say the best option would be something from Ronan solo

I put some Pogues songs in my post. But they could have been mistaken for band names. I'd also like to add "A Rainy Night in Soho" to the list I posted of Pogues songs. Great lines:

We watched our friends grow up together
and we saw them as they fell
some of them fell into heaven
some of them fell into hell

Ok ... so I was flipping around on TV and there was a concert special on public television with this guy. Is he at all popular? He reminds me of a much cheesier version of Barry Manilow.

Everyone pays taxes.

Everyone dies.

Everyone rocks out to Boyzone.
