A stalwart of Cork Folk & Traditional music, Timmy the Brit was one of the founders of the Cork Folk Festival. Probably more noted for his set dancing, and teaching of same, a concert, featuring the cream of Cork folk musicians, to honour Timmy and to celebrate his huge contribution to the living traditional music and dance scene in Cork is being held on Sunday Apr 29th at the Oliver Plunkett. It’s not the Donkey, like, but it’s an afternoon gig which means you’ll be back well before closing time!!! Line up below;
We would like to thank all of our customers for bearing with us during our renovations. We encountered a few unforeseen issues in the early stages which added a few weeks to our planned closure. We would especially like to thank all of the following for the excellent job they did;
Edward Browne, Building Contractor,
Pat Gill, Spokeshave
Frances, Bill and John.
Check out its new features;
Frosted glass on the front doors with groovy, hip Irish lingo,
Extended bar capable of handling 10 more scourges,
‘Davs was here‘ graffiti carved into the new floor,
New shelving to accommodate more mollya bottles.
Looking good, Tiggie.
Don’t forget Dr Dec tonight.
BTW – new webmaster in situ next week. After 17 years at the helm, it’s time to hand over the reins. Watch this space.
Having received the Royal Seal of Approval, it’s all systems go for Friday. There will even be a bit of music over the weekend with Mario Bani on opening night and the mighty Dr Dec & the Side Effects on Saturday.
