Anyone have a great recipe for Irish soda bread?

I've been looking for a great Irish soda bread recipe to try out for next week. In the past when I'd try different recipes the result was always just so dry and blah, and thought I'd try asking here so I'm not just going on anything I find online. I feel kind of inspired to try a soda bread again, as I've found real buttermilk at my local Stop and Shop (not the fake cultured stuff), this one's made by the people who make Kate's butter, and my scones have never turned out this good before. Nice and moist with a good crumb and flavor. They were always "ok" but kind of the past. So, I'm curious to see if I can pull off a really great soda bread to impress my friends, so if any of you have a recipe you can recommend, I'd really appreciate it.
