The homegrown Irish rock music scene really started developing in the 1960s. At that time the Irish music scene was dominated by the unique Irish phenomenon of the 'Showbands' which were groups/bands of professional performers who played at dancehalls and clubs across the country putting on a professional 'show' and playing all the American and British hits of the era. In the 1960s this was pretty much the only way a professional musician in Ireland could make a living. Two famous Irish artists that started off working in show bands but went on to put Ireland on the map as far as rock music is concerned are

Bands from Ireland, or bands with a Celtic or Irish influence?

Check out Flogging Molly, and The Dropkick Murphys.

Van Morrison, man. Astral Weeks is one of the best albums around.

Definitely these two if you want Irish influenced...

There's always The Pogues though they are from London...still fits in that same category pretty well...and The Dubliners.

If you're just looking for people from Ireland the ones I can think of off the top of my head are Damien Rice, Snow Patrol, and U2.
