Song of the Day: The Wolfe Tones, “The Wearin’ O’ The Green”

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! In honor of the day, here’s a ballad sung by The Wolfe Tones. "Wearin’ O’ The Green" is a song that commemorates the aftermath of the Irish Rebellion of 1798, when all things Irish were forbidden, most notably the wearing of green clothes and shamrocks on St. Patrick’s Day.
