Tomorrow marks the passing of one of the most important figures in Irish history, the nation's patron saint, St Patrick. Each year, on March 17th, people around the world come together to celebrate this powerful religious figure in time-honoured tradition, sporting the Irish colours whilst chugging pints of Guinness and singing anthems courtesy of the many world-renowned acts the island has produced over the years. 

Planning on welcoming shenanigans into your own home this St Patrick's Day? How brave of you! Maybe you're in need of an authentic soundtrack to get the party going? Or perhaps you're in the market for a specially-curated playlist, chock-full of records from Irish music legends old and new, to help you get into the spirit before heading to your local Irish boozer. Whatever the need, we recommend checking out Skiddle's official St Paddy's Day playlist.

Boasting over three hours of quality music from Irish acts only, our Paddy's Day selection includes heritage acts the likes of Van Morrison, The Dubliners, The Pogues and The Dropkick Murphys, as well as current post-punk prophets Fontaines D.C., The Murder Capital and Just Mustard, and contemporary dance music trailblazers, Kettama, Krystal Klear and Bicep, to name but a few. 

Listen to the full playlist below and be sure to like and follow Skiddle's Spotify account for more audio treats. Grand!
