After too long an absence Pat, Kay, Tom & Penny return home in mid Sep and may even find a way to play a tune or six while here.
Yeah, I know – we’ve all seen this but it’s still worth a mention. Cobh shanty singing group, the Molgoggers, decide to serenade passengers before boarding a flight taking them to the Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival in a way that only they can. Have a listen, and a look, at them singing a few bars of Jimmy Halligan’s ‘All aboard’.
Passengers waiting at the 300 gates to board an Aer Lingus Regional flight to Cornwall yesterday were spontaneously serenaded with an appropriate tune.The singers are the Molgoggers from Cobh, Co Cork en route to the Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival.

Final wrap up of the Uke Festival tonight.
Bí ann gan teip.
Psycho Killer, Qu’est-ce que c’est, fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fafafa fa fa,
Kickoff at 18.15 today for the match against Saracens.
A few seats still available.
This weekend sees the Cobh Ukulele Festival hitting the town and the Donk.
See full details on the website at http://cobhukulelefestival.ie
Saturday next, 29th, sees none other than Jimmy Crowley play a few songs at the Donk. Jimmy’s been a part of the Cork, and indeed further afield, music scene for more years than he’d care to remember and has recently returned from another European tour of La Zenia.
He’ll be kicking off about ten. Keep an eye out for some Cobhies in the clip below.
Semi final day on Saturday. Excitement a mounting.
Alas, it is with deep regret we must announce that the Donkey will not be open for business today. We are confident that this is a temporary measure and have attached full details below. We apologise to all our very supportive clients for this inconvenience.
As usual, for the Friday before Easter, no alcoholic sales are allowed in this country unless you want to shnake into a club, train station, or other such den of iniquity, to feed your thirst.
However the good news is the doors will be back open tomorrow, Saturday, and we’ll lash into a long weekend of craic, caint and maybe even a bit of ceol.
Have a good Easter, folks.
