Intoxicating Rhythm Section
Details are a little sketchy but hopefully will be able to correct soon. From Athy, Co Kildare Intoxicating Rhythm Section were Mick O’Rourke (guitar), Colm Walsh (accordion) both later in The Practical Householders, also Steven Mangan (vocals), later in Just A Philistine and Robbie Robinson (drums) ex No Sweat. Backing singers were Valerie Thomas, Trina, Nin Thew, Derville O Sullivan and Jackie Kelly. We believe John Byrne and Sean McMahon were also members, others will be added as we identify them.
