This painting is a way of thanking The Clover Leaf , an Irish pub in Glengarriff, for a couple of unforgettable evenings. On this particular evening, friends scattered around Southwest Ireland from Limerick and Killarney to Cork, got together as they do a few times a year for a night of traditional Irish music making. Thomas was joined by an accordion player, a couple of violinists, a bodhran drummer, and others who intermittently joined. All could sing, sometimes solo, sometimes all together. We left around midnight, but they were still going strong at 5am! Both the music and the intimate atmosphere were wonderful.
