The 59-year-old Hayes, still with a twinkle in his smiling Irish eyes, says that his two favorite Celtic classics are “The Old Man” and “Song for Ireland,” which will surely be in his repertoire to ring in the New Year.  He also “relishes playing popular Irish songs at Yonkers Raceway, where (casino CEO) Tim Rooney has always been great."
