This evening outside Gianni’s, Grove Street, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath.

A dramatic, inter-generational power pop/folk punk summit as Bressie and Shane MacGowan meet ahead of a Speaking Suppers gabfest in aid of LARCC Cancer Support Centre in Mullingar.

It’s like the mods and rockers all over again.

Everyone stay cool.

Thanks Sarah
