Legendz Karaoke

Saturday, July 18th, 2009

We regularly have karaoke in the bar, but Ive never seen a karaoke couple who know their stuff, get people involved, are talented themselves, and above all, appear to enjoy themselves and get involved with the various nutters around the bar ( and I’m not excluding myself in that description! ) like these guys! They’re also ably abetted by “Sausages”.

Gay Pride

Saturday, June 20th, 2009

This is Gay Pride week in Dublin. This year’s theme “Pride and Prejudice?”, celebrates pride in who we are as LGBTQ people and as a community, whilst questioning our community, society in general and ourselves on our attitudes and prejudices. The festival should celebrate diversity and challenge peoples’ perceptions of it.

The big march is on next Saturday at 2pm, and there are other events all this week. There’s a full program here

Going to or supporting a Pride march doesn’t mean people will think you’re gay. Everyone is welcome and all it says about you is that you support respect for everybody regardless of their sexuality, so if you can, GO.

Here’s a video of NBC comentator Keith Olberman discussing Marriage equality, you can learn more about it in Ireland here

Guitar Man

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

Like your music acoustic? No synthesizers? Come and listen to the Guitar Man next time they’re here. Pete and Stephen are good musicians (although not as good as they think they are!) and always worth a listen. This is them here last Saturday night.

Rally

Monday, May 25th, 2009

The Kilmore Hotel Cavan Stages Rally passed near here yesterday. In my opinion once you’ve seen one car going round a corner fast, you’ve seen them all. Still, the event seemed to be very well organised by Cavan Motor Club. It was difficult to get anywhere near the route and the large crowd had to take to the fields. I was out at Relagh Cross for a while.
