Marc Reilly presented us with a history of the visible,  JJ Manning again delighted us with his blues and folk compositions, Siobhán and Pat Kelleher demonstrated their family’s many musical talents, and Shirley McClure read her incisive and well-observed poetry.

The February Fireside session will take place on Friday the 22nd in Glendalough Green (the Top Shop), Laragh, and 7.30pm. Admission, as ever, is free and all ages are welcome.

Performers this month will include musicians Eileen McLane  and Jonny Tennant.
