The last time we were at the All Ireland Fleadh in Clonmel we went into a pub on a Sunday morning and got the bodhran player to go up to the bar to get a round of drinks in for the musicians. No sooner said than done! A wee while later he was despatched for a refill and within seconds the drink was flowing.
Next thing we know the landlord comes down shouting at the top of his voice ‘There’s some bastard in here ordering drink and not paying for it and I’ll tell ye all who it was - it was the f**king bodhran player that did it !!!’
Talk about bloody embarassing! Needless to say we hid our heads in shame and left the bar quietly!
Just a point, but the pub’s actual name is Lonergan’s.
Pub closed in 2009.
