We’ve been sitting on this one a little while holding out for a band photo and thank you Colm Walsh for coming up with the goods.  From Athy, Co Kildare, Intoxicating Rhythm Section (also know as The IRS) were at the time of the above photo; Mick O’Rourke (guitar), Steven Mangan (vocals), Robbie Robinson (drums), Sean MacMahon and John Byrne. This differs from the lineup detailed on our previous post so hopefully someone in the know can fill in some blanks and possibly tell us who played on the Fanning session.
