Dublin get-together with Don Cummer

Post by trish » Fri Mar 11, 2011 3:56 am

Hi All (says she, DARING to open up a new thread above the 88-page Wales thread...!)

The legendary Don Cummer is currently en route from Ottawa to Dublin. I believe he is also travelling with his guitar!

A few of us will be getting together to meet him, and Paula (Aloevera) has organised a room upstairs in the Bankers pub in Dublin City Centre from 8pm on Friday 18th March. The pub is located on Trinity Street. This street is just off Dame Street on the other side to the Central Bank.

All are welcome.

We are all looking forward to seeing Don and hopefully hearing some of his open mic favourites, such as his incomparable rendition of Memories :-)

Hope to see lots of you there. It will be the day after St. Patrick's Day and we look forward to helping Don drown the shamrock :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: . If you've any questions or need help with directions don't hesitate to PM me!

Céad Míle Fáilte Don!

Hi Trish
I would love to be there with you all welcoming Don. It would take me too long to get there in time
but believe me I am looking forward to photos (any sofa photos are most welcome) and any you tubes of Don singing
Passing Through or any of his songs are also most welcome.
So will be thinking of you all and greetings to Paula and Don and all others going.

What a lovely gathering THIS promises to be! Perfect timing with the holiday, too. You really go for authentic, don'tcha, Don? [This is where you take a curtsy/bow, Paula/aloevera, since it does come along with double-sided meaning :) .] I so much wish I could be there, but am sure looking forward to the photos. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy :D :D :D .

The venue for Friday night's gathering in Dublin has been changed due to circumstances beyond my control.

The new venue is the Teachers' Club, 36 Parnell Square, Dublin 1. This is just off O'Connell Street facing the Rotunda Hospital.

If anyone needs directions please PM me.

In song.
