(3.7MB)
These siblings grew up in the heart of Celtic tradition in Sydney Mines on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Whether it be at church dances or other public outings, the music of the MacNeils, was certain to be the focal point of the evening. For the BARRA MacNEILS, it's about the tradition they hold close to their souls.

LYRICS
The door is always open
The neighbors pay a call
And Father John before he's gone
Will bless the house and all

The holly green, the ivy green
The prettiest picture you've ever seen
Is Christmas in Killarney
With all of the folks at home

It's nice, you know, to kiss your beau
While cuddling under the mistletoe
And Santa Claus you know, of course
Is one of the boys from home

The door is always open
The neighbors pay a call
And Father John before he's gone
Will bless the house and all

How grand it feels to click your heels
And join in the fun of the jigs and reels
I'm handing you no blarney
The likes you've never known

Is Christmas in Killarney
With all of the folks at home
The holly green, the ivy green
The prettiest picture you've ever seen

Is Christmas in Killarney
With all of the folks at home
It's nice, you know, to kiss your beau
While cuddling under the mistletoe

And Santa Claus you know, of course
Is one of the boys from home
The door is always open
The neighbors pay a call

And Father John before he's gone
Will bless the house and all
How grand it feels to click your heels
And join in the fun of the jigs and reels

I'm handing you no blarney
The likes you've never known
Is Christmas in Killarney
With all of the folks at home
