Not to be picky..... Elvis Costello's from Liverpool (the other side of the Irish Sea).

For me, one Irish band towers above all others:

My Bloody Valentine

De Danann is an ensemble that plays traditional Irish music real well, As well as Irish adaptations of other music. My favorite is "The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba (In Galway).






I better not see any mention of "Riverdance" here...

All pop music is good music but all good music isn't pop music
Wanna know more about pop music or my boy-bands?

Arghhh. I just threw up all over my new keyboard. Dang!

As per usual, I can't pick only 5.
How's this for an eclectic mix?

Stiff Little Fingers, Thin Lizzy/Gary Moore, Clannad, Afro Celt Sound System, Celtic Cross, The Pogues, Van Morrison, My Bloody Valentine, David Holmes, Therapy?, High Llamas, Rory Gallagher, The Banned, Kerbdog/Wilt, Virgin Prunes, Horslips, Waterboys, The Radiators (From Space), Hyperplant, TPolar, Decal, Ambulance

Others who I've liked the odd track by in the past:
Sinead O'Connor, Undertones, Boomtown Rats, Ash (?)

Bound to be plenty more I've forgotten...
