AllMusic Review by James Christopher Monger

The Pearl Flapper label's Drop of the Irish: Irish Songs and Ballads collection belongs in the nostalgia area, not in the traditional Irish folk section. While the songs themselves will be familiar to most listeners ("Danny Boy," "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling"), the versions that appear here fall into the orchestra-laden easy pop category.
