Ireland’s unique musical heritage." (President Mary McAleese)

Jim McCann, Paddy reilly, Ronnie Drew, Eamonn Campbell, John Sheahan, Barney McKenna and Sean CannonRonnie Drew was an English teacher in 1961 when he returned to Dublin from Spain where he had been learning the guitar.  He used to sing, play guitar and tell stories at parties. His voice was described “like coke being crushed under a door”. Comedian John Molloy asked him to warm up the audience at his Gaiety Theatre show. Ronnie brought Barney McKenna, a superb tenor banjo player, with him. The lads then met every Friday night in Dublin’s O’Donoghue’s Pub on Merrion Row. Luke Kelly had just returned from England and student Ciaran Bourke joined them. The rest, as they say, is history, and to this day, the music has never stopped in O’Donoghue’s.
