FIREWORKS AT FIFTY FOUR

BIRTHDAY BASH
.
Last evening the Limerick skyline was lit up by a spectacular fireworks display under the walls of King Johns Castle. The illuminations were laid on courtesy of the National Lottery and kicked off the St Patrick's week festival on Shannonside. I watched the colourful spectacle from the domestic comfort of an upstairs window, tuning in periodically to the live TV broadcast just in case I’d miss anything !


And to tie in with the general celebratory atmosphere I am hoping to celebrate my 54 th birthday next Thursday (March 18) at Foleys (by the river) at 10 pm followed by a live performance by Yvonne Mc Carthy at the Brazen Head.

All Dew readers who find themselves at a loose end on the night are welcome to attend, you’d never know even the notorious Anonymous might show ! No presents required just your presence…

If I had the means to get there, I'd certainly come! Hope it goes lovely for you! :)

Hope Foleys can cope with the numbers, looking forward to the finger food!

Two or three would be good ! As regards food buy some chicken at the hut and you'll be finger lickin' all night !

Sorry I can't be there Gerry but I hope you have a great birthday and evening celebration.

If I was in Limerick I would be tempted, Happy Birthday and have a great night.

Dublin to Limerick and back again in the one night, tempting but I don't think so, need to have my head on on Friday morning. Will you be going to the Sin Bin afterwards? Had many a good night there meself. Have a good one and put up a few photos on the Blog.

Thanks for all the kind wishes , seems like there might be more absentees than bodies on the night ! I might have to cut back on the caterers ! And no Brian the 'Sin Bin' will not be on the itenary, live music much better and satisfying for the soul.

Well where's the report? Did Limerick rock on Thursday night? Photos, Photos !!!

Well Brian,
suffice to say it was an intimate gathering ! There was probably more online activity than in Foleys activity, but the music was excellent and the chosen few had a ball.
