The Snug bar, Melbourne last night.

“I am Irish and have been living in Australia for about 10 years. Last night, on a wet and windy evening [it’s Winter] on the busy Sydney Road in Brunswick, Melbourne, we were having a few pints in a tiny Irish bar, The Snug. The guys from ‘Legend Of Luke Kelly’ and Paddy Casey popped in and treat the punters to some classic songs from their repertoire. In old Irish tradition, chairs were arranged in a circle and were treated to many hours of Irish trad classics. Paddy belted out ‘Saints and Sinners’ and at request, ‘Sweet Suburban Sky’. Chris Kavanagh, as Luke Kelly finished off the evening with Scorn Not His Simplicity. Micheal and Kim, who opened The Snug only a few years ago were the perfect hosts. Evenings like this are few and far between and I just wanted to share it with you. Also singer songwriter Roesy [in denim jacket] is in the middle of a crowd funding campaign for his new album Wolf Counsel. It would be great to let the Irish Population know about this if possible….’
