8-) Thanks Suby, glad we met up in Cork. Ireland is a wonderful place, I knew it would be nice, but it far surpassed my expectations. I never would have imagined. :D

:D It was lovely to meet you Cynthia and your daughter
. Ireland is magical. The first time I went there in 2000, even though it rained in Dublin, I just loved it. I hope to explore more of the Celtic history and Irish literature. There are some good writers. Also my favourite rock guitarist is from Ireland. ;) Ireland has everything: - warm folk;music;history;beautiful scenery ; good food etc. I do love London and the rest of the British Isles. Subrata.x They say "the veil" is the thinnist there. :mrgreen:

Hi All,
Kelly and I had a blast at The Rory fest. As usual the people, The bands , Ballyshannon and old friends were great to see. A special thank's to Barry O'Neil for introducing me to Ted McKenna and Gerry McAvoy. I hope I didn't embarrass him due to the fact I had too many pint's at that point. :?
thank's Sean ( biscuits ) for letting me hammer out a couple of beats on his kit. Now I can say I've played drum's in Ireland. 8-)

Cheers, hope to make it back again,
Jimmy

Hi Cynthia,
Is that the guy from Glasgow that you asked about my Rory gig in 78? What did he tell you? I just had another memory from that gig. It was the first time I saw the band play as a three-piece and I remember wondering what happened to his keyboard player. I don't know if that will help to put a better date on it.

The photo looks great, but there is just a little too much light on your face. I still don^t know how to upload pics on here either.

Have a great start to the weekend :)

:lol: Hi there, yes that person is Jim M, and he is from Glasgow, and also one of the moderators at Roryweb, AKA Monty. I believe you have chatted with him over there.

In order to post photos on the site I use Photobucket. There are similar photo hosting sites, and there are also ways to post directly, but I have not had much success doing it that way.

Jim also granted me permission to post some shots of Ballyshannon 2016. I have access to many of this year's photos, although I was unable to attend this year. I will be posting those photos on another thread.

8-) Cynthia
