If it's Irish music you need,
Your voracious hunger to feed,
Please have no fear,
Dublin O is quite near,
Just get there with all proper speed.

Hatteras Lighthouse Limerick - Hurricane Warning!

The wind and the sand did batter us
The rain and the spray did splatter us
The hurricane warning
Said to leave in the morning
But we stayed one more day on Hatteras!

A Young Man From The South - A Drinking Limerick

There was a young man from the south
Who seldom opened his mouth
Unless he had call
To drink a high ball
And to him it was always a drouth

The Old Maid Limerick - She Caught A Poor Cat And A Bird

 She's caught a poor cat and a bird,
But she can't snare a man, so we've heard,
It's the old maid's sad fate
To lose out on a mate
And take tea - but s-sh! not a word.

Gaelic Storm - Dayton Celtic Festival Limerick

For this, I have been waitin',
GS is coming to Dayton,
Simply the best,
At the old Celtic Fest,
To miss it, I'd surely be hatin'.

A Gaelic Storm - Dublin Irish Festival Limerick

The news, it could be troublin'
Strong weather, it seems, is bubblin'
Bring yer wellies and coat
Maybe even a boat
The Storm is coming to Dublin!

Scythian - Dayton Celtic Festival

They're not from Ireland, I know,
But you simply must see their show,
Blow your mind to oblivion,
This band they call Scythian,
So on to Dayton, let's go!

A Dublin Irish Festival Riddle

Let me pose to you now this short riddle,
Answer me quick now, don't diddle,
"With strings and a bow,
And best in the show?"
It's Natalie MacMaster's fine fiddle.

Blackbeard the Pirate - A Limerick for Kids

Were the facts as bad as Jack feared?
He'd come face-to-face with Blackbeard!
But in a bad dream
Things are not what they seem
And he woke up and said, "Wasn't that weird!"

A Crab Named Sandy - Limericks For Kids

There is a young crab named Sandy
She lives on the beach near Grandy
But she never learned how
To swim, so now
She must keep her life jacket handy!
