Jameson St Patrick’s Live – Vicar Street

Whilst the world was busy painting their famous landmarks green, Vicar Street (and more so Jameson) were going one shade deeper with a star-studded, whiskey fuelled Paddy's Day (well Paddy's Eve) celebration. Kicking off the party was a band who are anything but strangers to the atmospheric Dublin 8 venue. With the echoes of We Cut Corners' … Continue reading Jameson St Patrick’s Live – Vicar Street

St Patricks Live 2015 Vicar Street

It's finally March, the Spring is here and those dark winter days are long becoming distant memories (if not for all the snow and sub-zero temperatures).

And so here we are, number one. I know I said that I would put this up yesterday but I wanted to build the suspense.
