There’s a video of The Rattlin Bog that everyone’s been watching lately. It originally started as a 5am after-wedding sing-song and has since gone viral.
But something about Patrice O’Connor (the pretty bride on the left) and Clodagh McCarthy (the stunning blonde) that keeps us riveted. We can watch the two sing this song all day.
The Rattlin Bog is an Irish folk song. It’s also a cumulative song like Twelve Days of Christmas.
Fun fact: these kinds of songs have a simple verse structure, which changes with some extra words/lines added to each verse. This makes the verses progressively longer than before.
