I posted a set of this some time ago. Search the forum with "irish jubilee" in "Body" and it'll turn up.

The only recordings I'm aware of are by Barry Gleeson (a friend of mine) and, I think, Cathal `McCOnnell of the Boys of the Lough.

Good luck if you try learning it!

Regards

Here is a version of THE IRISH JUBILEE or GOLDEN JUBILEE taken from an old Irish record sung by Connie Foley and Dorothy McManus around the late 1940s.

Way down in county Kerry, in a place they call Tralee,
A fine old couple they lived there named Kate and Pat McGee.
They were going to give a party on their golden jubilee,
Then Kate said she to Pat McGee, come listen here to me.

Put on your old knee britches and your coat of emerald green,
Take off that hat, my darlin' Pat, put on your old cobeen,
For today's our golden wedding, and I want them all to know
Just how we looked when we were wed, that fifty years ago.

Oh, well do I remember when we danced on the village green.
You held me in your arms, dear Pat, and called me your colleen,
Of good friends we've had many, of troubles we've had few,
Oh Paddy dear, come listen to what I'm going to tell you.

Put on your old knee britches, etc.

Oh, well do I remember when first I was your bride,
In the little chapel yonder there where we stood side by side,
Your hair was like a raven's wing but now it's turning grey,
Come over here, old sweetheart dear, and hear what I've to say.

Put on your old knee britches, etc.

Hope this is the song you're looking for.
If not, well, enjoy it anyway.
All the best,
Frank Maher

And compare to the Newfoundland song in the database, The Kelligrew's Soiree, which is apparently based on The Irish Jubilee. (Newfoundland version written in the 1920's by Johnny Burke.)
