More From The Limerick Post, July 1989
Here's what you'd see towards the back page in them days.
There's a new sheriff in town now, but this was the original Speakeasy bar on O'Connell Street. Monday nights were usually the domain of the Paul Duffy band, at whose gigs you would find the cream of Limerick musical talent battling to look as unimpressed as possible–while secretly burning with jealousy. They were really great gigs.
All in all, there was a heck of a lot of music during the last great depression, a good deal more than nowadays. The Celtic Tiger ushered in an utterly music-free era from which we are only starting to recover. Keep your fingers crossed.
