6. Going to gigs in the Dun Mhuire

Reliving my youth of gigs in Dun Mhuire in Wexford town. @michael.darcy was good enough to show me around ahead of their gig there tonight. Another brilliant interview for @goldenplec that i cant wait to write up. These lads just keep getting bettee. Finally get to what the hell @jhnnystwrt has been up to musically too. This is going to be a good night! #Wexford #Music #DunMhuire #Ireland #100HappyDays #Day28 #Concert #Sahn Source: Instagram/gav_leary
