Irish eyes - along with English, Scottish, Welsh and half Italian eyes - were smiling all afternoon at the St Patrick's Lunch at the Golf Club. A great lunch, washed down with copious pints of Guiness and a host of other beverages, was enjoyed before the entertainment began.
|Richard, Billy & Mo began their music as the liqueurs were served - Pocheen (don't tell the revenue!), Bushmills & Baileys were on offer to go with the coffee to help to further mellow the crowd.|

|With Patrick Fleming as "the compere who wasn't really there" one of the best supported social events of the year lived up to expectations - with dancing & singing from club members to complement the music and singing of the trio. Richard & Mo were ready with their keyboard and guitar as the club members sang their favourite Irish (and other) songs and it only took a few bars before Richard had identified the key and was adding music to the singing.|
|Thanks were expressed to Patrick Fleming for organising yet another great St Patricks Day lunch but he downplayed it in his usual way. "The Irish don't organise things - they just let them happen - Sure and t'will be all right when it happens" he said - or I think he did anyway - he was extremely mellow by then.|
|Next Year's lunch will be on 19th March. Book now if you want to be sure of getting in - tickets will go fast.|
