A fine collection of excerpts from various age-old Irish drinking songs.

A Short Dissertation On The Drinking Songs
The Drinking Songs in this album, while certainly rasty in part, are in no way rastier than the modern "R" rated movie. They have been handed down
from generations of Singing Drinkers, and many come from the very origins of our language. The Sault Antlers consider this music to be an Endangered
Species, and it is our intent to preserve and promote it for future generations of Singing Drinkers. Our world would probably survive without these
drinking songs, but our survival would be, in a small way, perhaps, void of much roguish jest and history.

These folks get together every year in a local pub, on St. Patricks Day. They also come together for the 6 month interim in September to hoist a pint
and share in the merriment.
A good time had by All.
