This has quickly become one of my family's favorite Christmas albums because it is lively, upbeat, and melodious. The Rovers have a great beat and rollicking voices and they do a terrific job with both the fun songs and the traditional carols. I particularly like Bells Over Belfast for its hopeful message in the current depressing situation with the Peace Agreement but it is also nice to hear upbeat renditions of God Rest Ye Merry, Away In A Manger, We Three Kings, and Silent Night along with less-often-heard All Through The Night, The Christmas Traveller, and What Child Is This. And last, but not least, is Miss Fogarty's Christmas Cake, which is a cute addition to the Christmas repertoire. All in all, this CD will leave you feeling good and full of Christmas spirit.

These men obviously had great fun recording this album - there are plenty of upbeat songs including Christmas in Killarney, Miss Fogarty's Christmas cake, Good King Wenceslas and Grandma got run over by a reindeer - but they also show that they are well capable of singing carols with the appropriate respect.
I particularly like Bells over Belfast, a song that one of them wrote themselves, showing that Christmas is a time of peace in that troubled city. Perhaps one day they will be able to sing Happy Xmas (war is over) and mean it, but that could be some years away so it's not included here.
The holly bears the crown is actually the traditional classic The holly and the ivy with a different tune but (I think) the same lyrics, and it works very well.
My favorite song here, however, is Miss Fogarty's Christmas cake, It sure sounds tasty !!!!
There are many other wonderful songs, some obscure, some famous, all with that distinctive Irish flavor.
This is a great, generally upbeat Christmas album which will work as background music, regardless of whatever else is happening, but if you give it dedicated attention, it has plenty to keep you interested.

One of the family's favourite CDs to trot out at Christmas is this 2002 release produced by Irish Rovers band member George Millar. If you like the music in general of this Irish-Canadian band, which took their name from the song The Irish Rover way back in 1963, you'll love the 18 tracks presented here that include their interpretation of familiar traditional carols/songs (tracks 2, 4, 6, 8, 11 to 13 and 18), and covers of a couple of novelty pop hits led by a rousing Christmas In Killarney, first a hit for both Percy Faith & His Orchestra and Dennis Day back in 1950, and Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer, first introduced by Elmo 'N' Patsy in 1983.

But what really attracted my interest were the unfamiliar songs, aptly described in the liner notes by Joseph F. Laredo this way: "many traditional Christmas favourites are lovingly revisited here, but one of the more intriguing aspects of this collection is the inclusion of several worthy songs that are seldom encountered on holiday anthologies ...

Band member George Millar's compositions Bells Over Belfast and It's Christmas Time Again, two toe-tapping originals sure to get you in the mood, are augmented by other rousing tunes like the Irish oldies Christmas Caroling, with new lyrics by George, Miss Fogarty's Christmas Cake, arranged and adapted by George, Wilcil McDowell and Wallace Hood, and The Holly Bears The Crown, along with The Christmas Traveler.

Sure to liven up any Christmas gathering ... and don't you know that Santa Claus is one of the boys from home?
