  1. Fanning Sessions Says:

    Regular reader John has sent in a photo of a 1980 poster of a Blades gig in The Crescent, Limerick oldcrescent

  2. Does anybody have more information on existing recordings from Paul Cleary and The Partisans? We are trying to catalog their recording with the aim to have them released digitally (especially unreleased recordings)? See for current status. Any further information or contacts appreciated.
