Partway through "The Boxer," amateur fighter Danny-Boy Flynn, played by Daniel Day-Lewis, is engaged in a crucial boxing match in Belfast. Not only has the fight become a political metaphor, but it is also a means by which Danny-Boy might seduce a former girlfriend, who sits in the gallery. During the triumphant bout, while the steam and beery cheers of the audience rise, Danny-Boy shoots her a glance captured in a camera flash.It passes in a nanosecond, but that one look -- fierce, glittering, animal -- is a defining moment in "The Boxer," a fine new film from director and co-writer Jim Sheridan.

O Marty boy, the votes, the votes are callll-ing The long and dreary race for Maryland governor has come to this: Mayor Martin O'Malley singing "Danny Boy" at a Parkville senior center. Sound like a Howard Dean-scream campaign moment? Like a punchy-beyond-belief candidate opening his mouth and belting out something that no politician -- even one with a band -- should let loose? But yesterday's musical burst was no accident. The Irish love song has been part of O'Malley's campaign schtick for more than a decade.

Talking to House of Pain's Danny Boy over the phone from a tour stop in New Jersey, two things become immediately clear: first, he doesn't have any brogue, and second, he barely has any voice.That last is only a temporary thing, fortunately. "The soundman [bleeped] the whole show up," he rasps. "So I screamed through TTC four different mikes, and here we are."But the accent thing is a permanent situation, and that's as it should be. Because despite the Irish element to House of Pain raps like "Shamrocks and Shenanigans" and "Danny Boy, Danny Boy," the truth is that no one in the group is from Ireland.

'Tis a day to be green, but not with envy, for all are invited to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. 'Tis time for all lads and lassies to join the festivities, no matter if ye be Irish or not. Sure, it would be great to celebrate the day in Ireland, but for most of us that is not a likely scenario. So don your green apparel tomorrow, grab your shamrocks and hoist a brew at one or more of the numerous celebrations in the area. You can choose from among the many Irish pubs planning major celebrations for their biggest day of the year.

WHEN WELCOMING a New Year, that time when we remember and reflect on old friends and acquaintances, each one is special. For pets this year, no memory would fill a heart with more joy than that of the little mix-breed Danny Boy.Featured in Pausing With Pets about three years ago, Danny Boy's story began about 12 years ago when he was a puppy roaming in a neighborhood around North Avenue dragging a large rope that was around his neck. Someone took the puppy home but within a few weeks he was again spotted in that area with another rope around his neck.

HOUSE OF PAINHouse of Pain (Tommy Boy 1056)Hip-hop is really jumping this summer. First Kriss Kross tops the charts with the bouncy, ebullient "Jump," and now House of Pain is working its way into the Top 10 with the similarly springy "Jump Around." But just as the guys in House of Pain have more to say than simply "Get out your seat and jump around," there's more to "House of Pain" than one single. In fact, "Jump Around," barely scratches the surface; not only are there tougher rhymes elsewhere on the album ("Danny Boy, Danny Boy," for instance)

Redskins Haters of Baltimore, weep not over Washington's 27-13 first-round playoff victory over Detroit. No doubt, a Redskins loss to a team that is 0-20 in the D.C. area would have been cause to rejoice. But patience, dear friends, is a virtue. The more the Redskins win, the more owner Daniel Snyder will convince himself that he's the George Halas of the 21st century. And the more Snyder becomes convinced of his own genius -- he's 99.9 percent there already -- the greater his chances of long-term failure.

Yes, it's true: Just as St. Patrick's Day arrives, O'Malley's March, the Irish rock band headed by Mayor Martin O'Malley, is apparently calling it quits. Its lead singer says he can't continue to rock and still be "laser focused on getting our state moving in the right direction again." But O'Malley fans, don't just cry into your green beer tonight. Instead, raise a glass to the March and sing this ditty, set to the tune of "Danny Boy." Oh Marty boy, Annapolis is calling you To leave the potholed streets you've called your home; O'er drugs and crime, and Kevin Clark and falt'ring schools Your Irish band has always struck a joyful tone Oh Marty boy, Annapolis is calling you Who else but you can fix the damage done?

Quartetto Gelato, which appeared Monday at Severna Park High School as part of the Anne Arundel Community Concert Association's series, took its name from the Italian word for ice cream, and its sound matches its name: smooth and sweet.The Canadian musicians displayed great versatility in a program that ranged from Viennese confections to contemporary American pieces, performed on violin, oboe, cello, guitar and accordion. And in honor of St. Patrick's Day, they played the Irish tune "Danny Boy," sung by violinist and tenor Peter De Sotto with feeling that touched the heart.
