A few others that look good to me:

The Prince of Ireland and the Three Magic Stallions

Brigid's Cloak: An Ancient Irish Story (I'm getting conflicting info on the age range for this one; it might be an upper picture book level?)

Small Beauties: The Journey of Darcy Heart O'Hara (about emigrating from Ireland, but perhaps still relevant enough to the theme?)

Tricia Douglas (teachgiftedkids) | 312 comments I know it's not a picture book, but because I always read this to my class around St. Pat's Day and they LOVED it, I'm going to suggest it to the readers who perhaps have older children or even just for themselves. It's by the great author Bill Brittain. All the Money in the World I'll take a look on my bookshelves for other books on Ireland. Leprechauns Never Lie is my favorite and a must-read!

Karen Witzler (kewitzler) | 52 comments This Is Ireland is a picture /travel book from the 1960's -- it is a little long at 64 pages, but target age is 5-8.

Brenda M. (haygram) I loved the Children Of Lir, I first heard this folk story in Dungarvin in Ireland. This story is a wonder interpretation of the tale and should be on every child's to read list.
