The late velvet voiced crooner Bing Crosby headlined the 1967 television special, Bing Crosby: A Little Bit of Irish, which originally aired on American networks. Shot live in Dublin circa 1966 as a tribute to the country of St. Patrick and the great potato famine, A Little Bit of Irish features Crosby and a series of guests - among them Milo O'Shea, The Guinness Choir, and John McNally -- performing a plethora of Irish ballads - an area of song for which Crosby became well known via his recordings. Eighteen numbers are sung in this hour-long event; the tracks include the much-beloved "Molly Malone," "Macnamara's Band,""The Boys of Wexford," "Courtin' in the Kitchen," "I'm Off to Philadelphia," and "Isle of Innisfree."
