Celtic folk music as we have it today (if you mean Irish, Scots, Welsh and other sorts of folk music) almost all comes from long after the time of St. Patrick and events prior to the Council of Whitby and other events. From what I have read "Brian Boru's March" is one of the oldest tunes that still exists in Irish music and he died at the Battle of Clontarf in 1014. The Chieftains and Brian Boru's March on the Uillan Pipes and Bodhran (small pipes and large hand held drum) and then the rest of the group joining in.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9h2Qmx2zp4E
Does any poster here happen to know anything about the Celtic church's chant tradition? Did it borrow any elements from Celtic folk music? Does it still exist today?

The Catholic Church in Ireland also uses it but not as often as the churches I stated earlier. Here are song good links:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMqKxpq6QAEhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3MzZgPBL3Qhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txIx9b07RhY&feature=relmfu
That don't sound as nice as I was hoping. Are you sure that's a specific chant style and not just psalms in a Gaelic language?
