Casual, friendly and open session. Starts around 8pm.
Thanks for the posting, De Vooluff, I’d appreciate any advice on getting to/from Blarney’s by public transport, especially if there is a late bus or something for getting back to Melbourne CBD. Seems like last train from Belgrave is 12.09am
A websearch brought up this gem from 2004:
"The residents of this area of the Municipality have indicated that they have been experiencing problems with regard to noise emanating from Blarney’s Celtic Affair over a period of approximately two years. Factors contributing to the unreasonable noise levels are listed by the residents as:
1. Music that can be heard in habitable rooms of neighbours on most Friday and Saturday nights and public holidays, often until 1.00am or beyond;
2. Music that can be heard within the property of neighbours and in other rooms most week-nights from approximately 6.00pm onwards, and most Saturdays and Sundays from approximately 11.00am onwards; and
3. Loud conversations and music emanating from the ‘beer garden’. "
Public transport has always been a problem on that side of the hills. Safe to assume you’d need a taxi or to befriend a driver to get to Belgrave before that last train.
Heaven forfend that music might be heard ‘in habitable rooms’… what about the uninhabitable ones? Several years ago, a plastic paddy band I was in used to play there weekly, and amplified.. perhaps we’re to blame. 🙂
"You can hear the cars and the shouts from bars and the laughter and the fights."
