Irish music is a subset of the genre of Celtic music, although the two terms are often used interchangeably. A nice introduction to Celtic music can be found at:

In recent years the popularity of such artists as the Chieftains, Celtic Woman, and Enya have brought Celtic music to the masses. After researching several choices on YouTube I selected this as a good example of Irish folk music. Enjoy.
