The magical St. Patrick’s Day marches our way again – and ’tis a day for leprechauns, clovers, the wearin’ o’ the green, river dancing, soda bread and Celtic songs.


Parents will want to turn up the volume on Putumayo’s Celtic Playground song set because the tranquil, beautiful melodies infused with harpsichord are so soothing and memorable – and baby needs some background music. The rich musical traditions of Ireland are harvested in this incomparable musical ode to Ireland, which you’ll find at


At you can peruse a selection of delicate, pristine Irish linens for baby, wee booties, unusual home décor items and charming bath products. Even if you’re not Irish yourself, you’ll certainly find something on this site that speaks to you with a lovely accent. Give this site a browse any time of year!
