If you haven’t been to Ballyboughal in a while… or you haven’t been to O’Connors pub in a while then you may not be so aware that Kevin and Mark [pictured] have introduced Saturday night music.

are you going...?

are you going...?

You may be thinking small town pub brutal music ? [I say, You may be….] That’s what I kind of thought when I first heard.

Personally, I ‘don’t like as much’ the karaoke machine type cd musicians…. I prefer the really good guitar player who can hold his own… And in fairness 99% of the time that’s exactly what I’ve got when I’ve gone down on a Saturday.

My favourite on this list is probably Harry Prendergast as a by the way

It’s held in the left hand side of the pub down beside the fire. Some sit near and listen to the music, others the right hand side where it can still be heard.

Either or… it’s great to see it, it’s brilliant to hear it and I have to give the lads credit it creates a nice bit of atmosphere that’s not overpowering… but just right.

That aside it is always the people that make a place…. that and a good pint of Guinness 😉  Of course if you have never been to Ballyboughal…. often spelt Ballyboghil amongst many variations…. I’ve made life very easy for you
