Good Music / Guilty Pleasure Thread (Part 2)

And then there be Scullion, not forgetting both The Bothy and The Lee Valley String Band(s)

Right … add Scullion 83 to the list and their release gigs for White Side of the Night.

Never saw Bothy Band live but have had their music on tape and CD for years.
Say hello to Philip if you see him down thay neck of the woods.
Also add in Paul Brady’s solo live set Macroom 80.

Kiely’s on Deerpark Road I think

Is it called Kennedy’s Bar now ?

Yeah I think so. Beside the old Stella cinema. Aunt lived below it.

My aunt, Lord have mercy on her, lived 3 mins away also.

Wilson Road?

No, Callary Rd.
Cousins used to knock around with the Morgan lads (as in that’s mad Ted).

Ah yeah Callary was next one down. Some dough around that area.

Made lovely brown bread she did.
Moved out in 1953 when houses wre built. It was the country then.

Uncle cycled out and asked the guy building Wilson Road how much he would sell him a house for and that was that. Went on himself to be one of the biggest electrical contractors in Dublin in 60s/70s.

Heard of them but don’t think I did. I was a bit square in those days. Round town anyway

Strange the way some things remain a constant :wink:
