Default Tune suggestions needed

I'm looking for suggestions for a couple of rousing 4/4 Irish marches. Anything OTHER THAN:
  • "Kelly, the Boy From Kilane",
  • "Minstrel Boy",
  • "Twenty Men From Dublin Town"
  • "Wearing of the Green".
...we already play those.

Any thoughts??

Thanks!
Vic

I forget if "Let Erin Remember" is 2/4 or 4/4
Ditto "A Nation Once Again"

I find it Amazing that someone went to Ireland, and all they came back with was a couple of 4/4's... Something in a nice 6/8 Time Signature might have been nice. Try one of those, they often sound a lot more Irish.

Boys of Wexford
Erin Far O'er the Sea

These come to mind pretty quick.
