Michigan Cafe Hosting ‘Danny Boy’ Marathon

FERNDALE, Mich. (AP) — On this St. Patrick’s Day, it’s “Danny Boy” over and over again at one Michigan restaurant.

AJ’s Cafe in Ferndale is hosting an effort to set a Guinness World Record for continuous singing of the Irish standard. The 50-hour marathon began Saturday and continues through Monday night.

Owner A.J. O’Neil told the Detroit Free Press that people are taking turns singing the song. He says there’s been a lot of variety, including six church choirs in a row at one point.
