CHICAGO (WSCR) – The South Side Irish Parade was discontinued after 2009, but The Score 670-AM is doing its part to keep the tradition alive.

The local group Three Men in Kilts recorded a new version of the “South Side Irish” song especially for the score.


The song is a new rendition to the well-known ditty written by the Irish Choir – Tom Walsh, Tom Black and Terry McEldowney.

The chorus goes:
We’re the South Side Irish as our fathers were before
We come from the Windy City and we’re Irish to the core
From Bridgeport to Beverly, from Midway to South Shore
We’re the South Side Irish! Keep listening to The Score!
