P. S. Re: the current thread on beards - three of these guys sported full beards, one a moustache & only one was clean shaven!

In the late 70’s I tramped around many of the festivals & sessions of Ireland, for a couple of years, with a cheap Japanese Banjo with no makers stamp, so, for the craic I stuck one of those Mulligan LP Label stickers on the head of it, & you’d be amazed the number of times a punter came up to me & said -

"Oh, a Mulligan Banjo eh! I heard they were very good"
