The one song I couldn't find that is just great is "The Rising of the Moon" as soon as I get it, I'll upload it. Now for the rest:
The Dubliners - Johnny McGory (http://beta.yousendit.com/transfer.php?action=download&ufid=E5F2AD83344FCB49)
McAlpine's Fusiliers (http://beta.yousendit.com/transfer.php?action=download&ufid=84FD65500F92E422)
The Dubliners - Off To Dublin in the Green (http://beta.yousendit.com/transfer.php?action=download&ufid=F5F39DBA49908CFD)
The Dubliners - Parcel of Rogues (http://beta.yousendit.com/transfer.php?action=download&ufid=F977199B79E7EB63)
The Dubliners - Will You Come to the Bower (http://beta.yousendit.com/transfer.php?action=download&ufid=E55AA6820C43FFA2)
The Dubliners - And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda (http://beta.yousendit.com/transfer.php?action=download&ufid=1D32066B40F0DBA4)
McAlpine's Fusiliers isn't exactly a war song, but it's a good protest song.
Off To Dublin in the Green - Is just great lyrics, I bought this album in Dublin actually.
Parcel of Rogues is a Scottish song about how the English king bought Scotland from the nobles, much to the discontent of the ordinary scot. Their protests were put down with force.
You know the background behind And the Band..,
Will you Come to the Bower was originally written by the Poguese.

Came just in time, I was listening to the last one as dawn broke.
Good to see an interest brewing.. makes me smile.
'Rising of the Moon' is a great song, although I do not have it available at the moment so I can't help there sorry.
Hmm.. The Dubliners, not a huge fan to tell you the truth, but hey!

You guys should check out Mischief Brew, if you like "rebellious folk".
Its not 'rebellious folk'...
Its folk music about rebellion... big difference

O Paddy dear, and did ye hear the news that's goin round?
The shamrock is forbid by law to grow on Irish ground...

No more Saint Patrick's Day we'll keep, his color can't be seen

And it's the Dubliners because they are the most accessible. I also have the Pogues, even though they don't really count, Christian Moore, and some of the Irish Boys. And from America, the Dropkick Murphys, who are quite good.

For they're hangin' men and women for the wearin' o' the green!
Per, check out the Clancy Brothers, they're quite good.
I suppose the dubliners are the most known. In my opinion, the wolfe tones are the best choice for rebellious folk.. if you could get your hands on some of them it would be worth it.
I met with Nappy Tandy and I took him by the hand...

I've got some wolfetones, and they are indeed great. But nothing gets better than the Clancy Brother's Botany Bay.
He said how's dear old Ireland, and how does she stand?
Shes the most distressful country that ever you did see...

I'm downloading Clancy. And I'll keep my eye out for Wolf Tone. I don't think I'll find it in Denmark, I'm fairly certain I'm the only person here with any Irish blood in him.
EDIT: For they're hanging men and women there for the Wearin' o' the Green."

I've got a wolfetones version of Wearing o' the Green.

Padraig Pearse - Wolfe Tones (http://www.savefile.com/files/5544921 )
Heres one... there will be more, but it takes a while.

If I had turned a traitor to the wearin o' the green!

You may take the shamrock from your hat and cast it on the sod

The Broad Black Brimmer - Wolfe Tones (http://www.savefile.com/files/8731102 )
Last one for now... just yell if you want more
Wolfe Tones - A Nation Once Again (http://www.savefile.com/files/3645508 )
The lyrics are originally by Thomas Davis, one of the members Young Ireland. Its a favourite in our house... my grandfather breaks into it after a few :)
And if the colour we must wear is England's cruel red...

Sean Stout is something I've heard from the Dubliners too. Good stuff. Downloading the last track. It's good!

Clancy Brothers - Botany Bay (http://download.yousendit.com/2D55CB9F3F0DBECD)
My personal favourite, not a rebel song though, an emigrant song.
